We are proud of the creative program we offer children needing care after school or wishing to pursue a special passion. Our programs provide continuity between the children’s experiences in their classrooms and after school. We strive to create a caring, respectful, joyful environment, where students are encouraged to develop their interests.

Santa Cruz Montessori offers a variety of after-school programs for elementary school children. (Younger children needing care attend our Montessori All-Day classrooms).

Elementary children (first through sixth grades) may participate in a regular after school recreation program, including sports, games, arts and crafts, homework club, and free play. The program provides a fun, relaxed environment with a consistent structure and caring recreation leaders. The program is available from 3:00 – 5:30 pm with parents paying on an hourly basis. Early morning care before school is also available beginning at 7:30 am.

In addition, Santa Cruz Montessori offers an After School Enrichment program for elementary students with classes, clubs, and sports teams to give students the opportunity to pursue their interests in more depth under the direction of a specially trained teacher. A sampling of offerings includes SCM Children’s Choir, violin instruction, chess club, chemistry and physics, creative movement, yoga, ceramics, and team sports.

“We especially appreciate the after school care staff’s helpful attitude and dedication to their work.”
