Montessori Casa Program Descriptions
Montessori Casa offers Early Childhood Montessori Programs for Toddler Age (19 mos to 3 yrs of age) at Killarney and (2½ yrs to 3 yrs of age) at Lake Bonavista; Preschool Age (3 and 4 yrs of age) at both locations; and Kindergarten Age Children at both locations. At the Killarney location, we also have an option for a Lunchtime Program for Preschool and Toddler Age children. Enrolment is limited.
For the 2019-2020 School Year in Alberta, children must be at least four years old on or before March 1 to start kindergarten in the fall of 2019. Kindergarten Age Children can access our lunch program in between our Casa Montessori program and their CBE Montessori Kindergarten at Killarney Elementary and Lake Bonavista Elementary Schools. The lunch program is offered through our Out of School Care Program, which includes supervised playtime and walks to and from the schools. Our Out of School Care programs for Kindergarten Age at both locations also offer options for Before Care, After Care, and Before and After Care which include all-day programming and fun on non-instructional (PD) days and school holidays. Drop-in Care is available on PD days for Kindergarten Age students who attend our lunch program but are not enrolled in Before or After Care, for an additional fee. Please inquire for rates.
Our Out of School Care Program also offers Before and After Care for School Age children in Grades 1- 6. It includes supervised walks to and from the schools and indoor and outdoor recreation and learning. Before Care, After Care, and Before and After Care options include all-day programming and fun on non-instructional (PD) days, early dismissal Fridays and some school holidays.
Please note that our programs run 5 days/week as per our annual calendar and that we are open from September to June each year. Spring Break and Summer camps may run for school-age children if we receive enough enrolment.
