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.
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.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 older students meet together with a teacher for journals and afternoon lessons in the East room, while the younger students nap in our West end. As the younger children wake up, we gather together again for crafts, games and outdoor play.Back To Top
