Activities offered during early morning and extended day periods provide academic, social, and cultural enrichment for students.

The extended day period extends the structure, warmth, and discovery-based nature of the Montessori prepared environment into the late afternoon. Emphasis shifts from the core work of the Montessori curriculum to more informal activities associated with practical life, arts integration, and other enrichment. Examples of extended day activities include: gardening, cooking, handwork, service projects, and outdoor play. All students are offered a light, healthy snack.
