Safety note to parents regarding attendance and drop off/pick up

For the safety of our students, children can not be dropped off prior to 8:30am or picked up after 3:15pm or they will be sent to extended care.  Children cannot be left unattended in our building and our extended care program is available for this purpose.  If your child does attend extended care, your FACTS account will be assessed the drop in fee indicated on our tuition schedule.  Thank you for your attention and cooperation in this important matter.

Drop off time in the morning is between 8:30am and 8:40am.  Attendance is sent to the office for the classrooms each morning by 8:45am.  If your child will be late or absent, please call the office or send an email to, to let us know.  Our front office staff will call to check on your child's welfare if we do not hear from you.

Montessori 101 - Infants & Toddlers

"Education must begin at birth."
-Dr. Maria Montessori, the 1946 London Lectures

Montessori Infant & Toddler programs offer so much more than childcare. The classroom design fosters your young child’s emerging independence and desire for exploration. The environments are designed to promote your child’s growth in all areas of development. Additionally, Montessori Infant & Toddler programs provide support and guidance for families through programs that may include parent education and parent/child group experiences. Read more about Montessori Infant and Toddler programs and call or visit us to learn more about our own Toddler program at MSBG.
