Montessori School of Novato tries to accommodate the needs of each child and family so we have a wide range of scheduling options.The minimum a child can be enrolled is three mornings a week from 8:30AM – 11:45PM and the maximum is five days/week from 7:00AM – 5:30 PM. Refer to the tuition schedule for specific times and days. Parents are able to choose the days they would like their child to attend as long as there is space available. Re-enrollment is done February of each year and we accept new families after the re-enrollments are completed. In June, we are usually full for the following September. We maintain a waiting list and openings do become available as familiy's plans change.

Music: All students receive music class once a week with our music teacher. Musical instruments are part of each day in the classroom

Art: Art is an important part of the class. Children paint, draw and use playdough. Art projects are geared toward our monthly theme

Lunch: Children bring their own lunches.  We provide a mid morning snack and an afternoon snack for those children who are here until 4:00 or later.
