AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS (3:00-4:15 p.m.)
“All our handling of the child will bear fruit, not only at the moment, but in the adult they are destined to become.” – Maria Montessori
After-School Clubs offer further academic enrichment to children and parents who enroll and can be fun for the whole family.
Initially offered to provide service and convenience to busy parents, After-School Clubs allow children to participate in activities for which they would otherwise need to leave campus.
Additional fees are paid for a child or adult who wishes to participate. Scheduled in three semesters throughout the school year, new or recurring programs are offered every 8-10 weeks. Monies collected allow the school to pay each independent contractor or school staff member leading each class – while also offering the school an opportunity to support its operating endowment with a small percentage of collected monies.
Program offerings vary from year-to-year and season-to-season but have often included:
- Yoga or Pilates
- Art, Clay and Glass
- Piano, Strings and Drumming
- Shakespeare and Comedy
EXTENDED DAY (3:00-6:00PM)
As the oldest full-day Montessori program in Cincinnati, TNSM is proud to offer an Extended-Day Program that is contract- or drop-in based, depending on what works best for each family.
One Extended-Day Program is for children ages 3-6 and the other is for elementary-age children. These programs speak to the development of the whole child and offer consistency for children who enjoy staying after school to have extra time to play with friends, build huts in the woods, play games, enjoy a healthy snack or to work on homework if needed. Additionally, some children participate in both our After-School Clubs and Extended Day, moving between each depending on the day and their respective schedule.
