2018 PHASE-IN INFORMATION
The children will start school on Monday, August 27 in two different (phase-in) groups.
3-year-olds (first-year students) will attend from 8:30-10 AM Monday – Friday.
Kindergartners and second-year students will attend from 10:30 AM – 12 PM Monday – Friday.
Phasing-in is an important part of the planning for a successful beginning to the school year. Just as we carefully sequence the materials in the environment and choose activities with self-correcting features, much thought is given to starting the children in a gradual progression. This helps to provide a positive experience for each child. Phasing-in gives the children the special attention and positive modeling necessary for a happy and successful start in the Montessori classroom each year.
Regular morning school hours of 8:30 AM – 11:30 AM will begin on Tuesday, September 4.
