MONTESSORI EARLY MORNING AND EXTENDED DAY PROGRAMS

 

 

WEMS offers extended hours before and after our regular hours. It is an extension of our Montessori program so that we can provide a consistent Montessori environment throughout the day.

MONTESSORI EXTENDED DAY

Our Montessori Extended Day program is a continuation of our Montessori Morning program. Children who are under the age of five have a rest time. During rest time quiet music will be played to create a calm, peaceful atmosphere. Children who need an extended period of rest will be given a quiet environment to sleep. After thirty minutes, children who do not fall asleep will get up and begin a work time. A rest mat is provided for all children by WEMS.


You will need to provide:

  • A sheet or towel to cover the mat and a blanket to cover your child. Your child may also bring a "lovey" for rest time.
  • These items travel to and from school with your child each day. No mat coverings are stored at school.
