Saxtons River Montessori School

Our Daily Routine

School begins each day on our playground. Preschool students greet their teachers, hang up their backpacks, and join their friends in active play. At 9AM we ring the bells and transition inside with a daily greeting song, to wash hands and gather for circle time. Throughout the morning, children move about freely and purposefully, working with materials from the various areas of the classroom, sharing a project with a friend, enjoying a story from our library, or offering friends a puppet show. The teachers circulate, as well, giving a lesson, problem solving with a child, listening to a story, or observing. Toward the end of the morning, the children return to the playground for outdoor learning and our half day students are picked up between 11:30AM and 12PM.
