Amazing Aftercare

Do you need to run errands in the afternoon, finally get to that yoga class, or go have tea with a friend or a good book? Aftercare is not only for our families with two parents working full time, it’s for occasional use as well. Sign up between the 15th and 25th of each month in order to guarantee a spot for the following month, and you may still register your child until the morning of the day you need care if there are open places.

The Aftercare program runs from 3:30 to 5:30, and children may be picked up at any time during that period. Registrations prior to the day of care are $12 per child per day; day-of registrations are $24 per child. Elementary program children only. Please contact Haley Williams with any questions about registration atofficeassistant@montessori.k12.in.us.

So, have your child join the fun and go get all that work, er, peacemaking done.
