Before and After School Care

The Ocean State Montessori School offers several extended day options for working parents. Before- and after-school care can be used on a full or part-time basis from 1 to 5 days per week. Preference is given to students who contract for full-time use. Drop-Ins are accepted when space is available. See the Tuition & Costs page for information on applicable fees.

Early Morning Drop-off

Early Morning Drop-Off is available on a daily basis beginning at 7:30 am. Students arriving early are “delivered” to their classrooms at 8:15 am.

After School Programs

Children’s Room (ages 3 and 4)

Hours: 12:00 pm to 5:30 pm

The Children’s Room is our after-school program for children ages 3 and 4 and is a nice complement to the morning Montessori program. Children enjoy lunchtime with friends; have opportunity to rest and nap; and participate in a wide variety of activities including arts and crafts, games, toys, story-time, singing, creative movement, and cooking. Special events throughout the year add additional excitement and fun. Although the materials and activities are different, the Children’s Room supports the philosophy and curriculum of the morning Montessori program.

Prime Time (ages 5+)

Hours: 1:30 pm to 5:30 pm

Prime Time offers after-school care for students ages 5 and up. The children (Kindergarten only) have a brief rest-time and then have ample opportunity to play and socialize with their friends. Activities include games (board, card, etc.), arts and crafts, music, stories, puzzles, computer games, reading, drama, and creative movement. Children of this age are increasingly social and value their time spent in the company of friends.
