The Montessori Program is in session September through June. It is designed as a 3 year program, with all the preparatory activities of the first two years culminating in a successful kindergarten year. We accept children into the program between the ages of 2 and 3 1/2 years, and strongly recommend they remain for a full three year period, including kindergarten. The full three year cycle offers the children the opportunity for maximum growth - creatively, intellectually, and socially - by allowing them to explore and work at their own pace without fear of failure.
Children age 4 and over will be admitted if space becomes available. They will be expected to commit to 2 years in the program.
The MCC provides both half-day and full day programs. The half-day day program is available for children ages 2 - 3 and goes from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm. The full day program is available for children ages 2 - 6 and goes from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm.
