3 to 6 Year Olds
For Children 3 to 6 Years of Age/Five Half Days
The “big classroom” is the room to which the children in the two- and three-day classes aspire! For new students, it is the start of their Madison Montessori experience. It is here, five days per week, that the children become intrepid explorers of the array of materials available to them. They embrace the lessons of courtesy, responsibility, independence and begin to develop good work habits.
There are 25 students and three teachers. Children entering this class must be toilet trained. Depending on availability, students are enrolled in either the morning or afternoon session. Mornings: Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM or afternoons: from 12:30 PM to 3:30 PM.
Extended Day Program
Children enrolled in the 3 to 6 year morning session have the option to attend the elective Extended Day Program. Here, children bring their lunch to school and stay until 2:30 PM on preselected day(s). This program is available Monday through Friday and is limited to eight children per day.
Lunch Bunch Program
Children in the 3 to 6 year afternoon session have the option to come an hour earlier to school to attend the elective Lunch Bunch Program. Here, children arrive at 11:30 AM, have lunch with their friends and then join their class at 12:30 PM. Lunch Bunch is offered Monday, Wednesday and Friday and is limited to six children.
