Special Programs After School

We offer additional activities after school such as Chess Club, Art, Robotics, “Girls on the Run”, yoga and “Improv”. These activities 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. The student must bring his/her lunch and snacks for the day. The Enrichment Day Program is open to students aged 3 years through 14 years. It is directed by two Montessori trained teachers.

Summer Camp

Crystal Lake Montessori School offers week-long themed classes during the summer. We offer half day, full day and extended day options. Some of the weekly themes of previous years were studies in science, nature, authors, and writing as well as regular field trips to places in our area. Our spacious gym and beautiful outdoor environment provide physical activity and exploration no matter the weather. The Summer School Program is open to all ages.
