The School Program

Families at Child's View enjoy an extended school year to accommodate a variety of schedules.  The school year begins mid-August and concludes at the end of May.
Summer Program
Child's View Montessori offers a full year program that includes 3 months of summer-style activities.  We incorporate daily lessons with an outdoor classroom and field trips for our oldest students and sprikler days for the younger students.
Full Day Program
Our unique school environment allows families to choose a schedule suited to their needs.  The full day program is 8:30am to 4:30pm from 4 to 5 days a week.  This includes staying for the noon meal, nap, outside play, and morning and afternoon snacks for children 18 months to 4 years.  Children ages 5-6 attend our full day program 8:30am to 4:30pm from 4 to 5 days a week.  This program includes participation with the whole 3-6 classroom in the morning and an individualized small group experience using the advanced curriculum materials in the afternoon.

Children ages 18 months through 5 years can attend the half day program from 8:30am to 12:30pm for the Toddler Community or 1:00pm for the Primary Classroom.  This program includes practical life, sensorial, cultural, math and language activities as well as group time, outside play and lunch.
Before and After Program
Families may elect to use the "before" program arriving from 7:15 to 8:15am or the "after" program with late pickup from 4:30 to 5:30pm.  Families have the option of scheduling only "before" or "after" programs but not both.  After care is not available for children under the age of 3.  Students who arrive early gradually begin their day in the classroom.  Students who stay after enjoy outdoor time, free play and art activities.
Tuition Payment
Tuition payments are due on the 10th of each month.  The calendar is based on 20 days of attendance per month and averaged over nine months according to the fee schedule.
Suzuki Violin Program
Child's View Montessori supports the arts through music expression.  Lessons are offered, at an additional fee, with Donna Carnes, a professionally trained Suzuki instructor. 

Parent Partnerships
At the Child's View Montessori, teachers and parents form a partnership to provide optimal learning and living environments for each child.  Twice a year, parents have a formal opportunity to meet with their child's teacher to discuss their child's progress and they receive a written evaluation at year-end.  Parents are free to call or e-mail a teacher whenever a question or concern arises.  Our "Parent Education" series offers programs for both new and veteran parents.  The school conducts scheduled parent discussion meetings throughout the year that includes topics on Montessori in the Home Environment and Montessori Philosophy.  Guest speakers, book clubs and classroom tours are a part of this series.  Throughout the year, parents receive valuable information about the Child's View and Montessori Education.  Parents also receive our monthly newsletter with information about classroom activities and upcoming events.  We have a parent library that provides a variety of Montessori-based reading materials for parents to borrow.  As a Child's View Montessori parent, you will enjoy the satisfaction of knowing that your child is thriving and that you are contributing to their growth.  Investing in your child's education at an early age lays groundwork for their intellectual and social growth.

Community Atmosphere
Through parent meetings, school-wide events and a relaxed Parent Group, we create a sense of community and belonging.  Each fall, the Child's View community gathers for a potluck picnic to meet and play with new and returning families.  Annual events also include "Parents Nights" in late winter, the "Moving on Celebration" for kindergarden students and an end of the year celebration picnic.  On their birthday, children enjoy a simple celebration in which they carry a globe around a candle that represents the sun.  The child walks around the "sun" one time for each year they have been on the planet.

Food
Children that use the "before" program may bring their own breakfast to eat at school while they wait for their friends to arrive. All children will need to bring their own lunch, we believe that bringing their own lunch is an opportunity for children to bring part of home to school each day.  The school provides healthy snacks and juices in the morning and afternoon.
