Before School and After School Enrichment

IMS offers before and after school enrichment programs that keep children engaged in fun and creative activities beyond the 8:30 – 3:30 school day. Children can be enrolled in the After School Program until 4:30pm or 5:30pm.  The before school program is 7:30 – 8:30am.  Drop-in space is available for both programs.  Drop-ins require 24 hours advance notice, space is available on a first come first serve basis.


Before School

Children enrolled in early drop-off spend the early part of the day in a specially prepared before school environment.  They can choose from quiet activities, read stories, and get some early morning gross motor time in before heading to their classroom.  Before school teachers bring children directly to their classroom at 8:30 am.


After School

IMS offers a vibrant after school program from 3:30-5:30 pm.  Enroll in either 4:30 pm pick up or 5:30 pm pick up times.  During after school we follow the same ground rules as the school day and provide a consistent routine.  After School begins with a gross motor period each day followed by engaging activities in the classroom and snack time.  After school materials focus on art, movement, outdoor play, and more!

Current families can drop-in to After school on a daily basis.  To drop-in call the school or e-mail administration@ithacamontessori.org with 24 hours advance notice.
