Extended care is available to all children enrolled in the lab school. The hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. and noon to 5:30 p.m. Extended care is not included in tuition rates and is collected separately from tuition payments. You may use it part-time or full-time, but you must register in advance for a discounted rate.
The extended care program is licensed by the Ohio Department of Education - Early Childhood Division and is directed by a Childcare Coordinator. The Childcare Coordinator is a credential Montessori teacher and is assisted by college students who are enrolled in the Montessori Teacher Education Program.
The children remain on the university premises for this program and are provided a wide range of developmentally appropriate activities.
Extended Care Rates 2014-2015
Available to families whose extended care needs will vary week-to-week or for those who will use extended care only occasionally. Drop-In use will be billed according to use. Drop-In use requires a 48 hours advance notice. Availability will depend on staffing. The fee for this service will be $10.00/hr and will be billed to you monthly. (We calculate the fee by half-hour increments.) Extended care services are provided on school days only. When the lab school is closed, so is extended care. Although usually available, we cannot guarantee drop-in extended care services. We reserve the right to decline services if we are unable to produce the legal staff ratio required by the State of Ohio.
To register for Drop-In services, please complete the Child Care Registration Form. Return it to the Montessori Office with the registration fee of $50.00 per child.
