Bay Montessori School offers before and after school care for parents looking for additional care for their children. This home-like environment encourages the social, emotional and physical development of each child by incorporating the Montessori philosophy of independence, cooperation, and mutual respect the children experience in their classrooms. Children look forward to this time of interaction with children from other classrooms.
Begins every school day morning at 6:45 and runs until classrooms open at 8:45
Available for all children ages 2 through 8th grade
After School Care
Runs every school day until 5:30pm. (12 – 5:30pm for 2-4 yr olds, 3-5:30pm for K, Elem, and Middle School).
Activities are designed to be an extension of the Montessori classroom. Developmentally appropriate activities such as resting, playing games, having a snack and playing outdoors embrace the principles of the Montessori classroom.
PM care is offered on Professional Days for those children enrolled in the After Care Program.
“Out of School” Services

Spaces in these classrooms will be limited, so advance registration is required. Spaces will be filled based on the order registration forms are received at the beginning of August. If on any given day there are insufficient students signed up for care the School has the right to cancel this service and will inform parents 14 days prior to the day. Please note that child care hours for these days are condensed to 7:30am to 4:30pm. Late pick-ups will result in the same additional fees as after care during the school year.
This service is open to any student at Bay. The fee for this service is not included in the annual contracted extended care fees. The fee is $50/day and is due with the registration form at the beginning of August.
