Especially important for Primary and Elementary Families: starting in 2018, because we know there are families who need it from their ASP Drop In signup history, we're adding an option for a Two Day ASP Contract, which might save your family a lot of money. Also new in January, to help us keep accurate records without taking our attention away from the children, parents will be asked to sign up for all Drop In ASP via our web form, and to pay to drop in as they sign up.
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.Learn more about Discovery at this link.

We have a new number for parents of ASP students to call after office hours are over.
