Take note of these updates from Aidan's Director of Auxiliary Programs regarding our After School and Discovery Programs.
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.
Additionally, Aidan offers opportunities for learning and fun with friends in our after school Discovery Programs.
Registration for Spring Discovery opens on Friday, March 3. Read about our Primary and Elementary class offerings here!
Registration for Girls on the Run is now open! Sign up to have your daughter be a part of this fun and transformative experience today.
