The PA's business for this new year is off and running after their first meeting of 2017-18! Whether you were there or you're just curious about how PA meetings work, the pictures taken are worth checking out - and so is the next meeting!
Before & After School
The Before and After School Program at Aidan is designed to provide a safe, comfortable, and engaging environment for Primary and Elementary students before and/or after their Montessori work.
In the morning, children can read, socialize, and choose hands-on materials in one of the Primary classrooms. Students in Primary are sent to their own room. Students in Elementary go to a Lower Elementary classroom.
In the afternoon, our Director of the After School Program prepares an after-school environment in the Toddler classrooms so that children can be independent and enjoy choosing age-appropriate materials, games, art media, etc. Students can take a nap, eat a snack, and enjoy each other’s company in play. Parents supply snack on a rotating basis similar to the classroom. When the playground is available, children go to the outdoor environment for supervised outdoor play. Children may also go for a walk to the Zoo, the library, and parks in our area. ASP personnel are sensitive to the needs of children at all ages and stages of development in creating activities. They guide and encourage independence, positive choices, and collaborative play that fosters positive social relationships.
Additionally, Aidan offers opportunities for learning and fun with friends in our after school Discovery Programs.
Taught by Aidan staff and outside vendors, classes are offered three times a year in the fall, winter and spring. We offer classes in the arts, athletics, technology and language. There is an additional fee, with reduced rates for children already enrolled in the After School Program.
This Fall's after school enrichment offerings at Aidan will include favorites like Chinese and Chess and new options like Model UN, Tennis, Watercolor, and Arabic! Enroll today - space is limited.
