The Saxtons River Montessori School is open to children between the ages of 3 and 6. Half Day session is from 8:30-11:45 a.m. Full Day session is from 8:30-3:00 p.m. SRMS offers three, four, and five day programs in order to best accommodate the unique needs of each child.
Half Day Preschool
School begins at the door. Preschool students greet their teachers, hang up their coats, put on their slippers and join their peers. Children move about freely and purposefully, working with materials from the various areas of the classroom, sharing a project with a friend, watching others work, or stopping to have a snack. 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 gather for circle to hear a story, sing songs, and tell the weather on the felt window and share the calendar work of season, month, day and date. The morning session concludes with thirty minutes of outdoor activity, weather permitting.Back To Top
Full Day Preschool
Full Day Preschool students regroup after morning recess with a community lunch, followed by read-aloud and rest time with a story tape. Our 5-year-olds meet together with a teacher for afternoon lessons, while the younger students rest in our circle room. Following rest and lesson time, we gather together again for crafts, games and outdoor recess.
