The senses, being explorers of the world, open the way to knowledge.”

– Dr. Maria Montessori

Before & After School Care

Before School Care

We offer a Before School Program each school day from 7:15 a.m. until the start of class. It is open to all students. It is a time of socializing, quiet time or physical activity as they meet in the gym under the direction of CLMS staff.


After School Care

We offer an After School Program each day from the end of the school day until 5:30 p.m. It is open to all students and it meets in the gym under the supervision of CLMS staff.

After School Electives

Parents can sign their children up for additional activities after school such as Chess Club, Art, Robotics, “Girls on the Run,” yoga and Improv. These electives are offered at various times throughout the school year and are taught by trained professionals.


Enrichment Days

At Crystal Lake Montessori School we understand that when there is “no school” you may still need your child to be at school. We offer an Enrichment Program on each of the scheduled days off of school during the school year. Enrichment Days are scheduled for 8:30-3:30, and for those who may require extended care we also offer 7:30-5:30. The students study other countries, other cultures, make art projects and participate in many other special activities as well as outdoor or gym time. Students should bring a lunch and snacks for the day.
