After School Programs

The After-School Programs at Aidan (ASP) are designed to provide a safe, comfortable, and engaging environment for Primary and Elementary students after their Montessori work.

In the afternoon, our Director of Auxiliary Programs prepares an after-school environment in the ground-level classrooms so that Primary and Elementary children can be independent and enjoy choosing age-appropriate materials, games, art media, etc. Students can eat a snack, work on projects, and enjoy each other’s company in play. Families 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. 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.

Phillip’s work in education began at the Sheridan School in DC, where he served as camp teacher at their Creative Arts and Summer Adventure Camp (CASA) while home from college during the summer.
