As the information about COVID-19 has changed rapidly, we understand that to fulfill our responsibility to our parents, children, and greater community, the responsible decision is to practice social distancing. For the latest updates, please click here.

Our Approach to Distance Learning

We hope you are staying healthy as we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic as a community. With school closed, we know there are added pressures on you to provide childcare to your children on top of all of the other things you are doing to support your families.

With that in mind, we’d like to share a few resources that will help you support your children’s Montessori learning in the home. First and foremost, we want to communicate to be gentle with yourselves. There is no way to create a Montessori school at home, and we know that the reality of the situation may mean you are relying on screen time more often than normal or simply trying to keep your house and work in order through this. Please take these offerings and make them your own. We are with you and your children in whatever ways you choose to engage with these materials, and we are ever grateful for your collaboration through the circumstances we’re facing.

Daily Activities

Snowdrop's Daily Routine

As you know, toddlers thrive on consistency and routine. Below we have posted the schedule of a typical day at Snowdrop Montessori for you to refer to. We hope this will help give an understanding of what your toddler’s weekday rhythm is:

8:30 – 8:45   Arrive at school, take off shoes and coat and prepare for the work cycle.

8:45 – 10:00  Work cycle, consisting of independent work, and individual/group lessons given by teachers. The children also use the toilet and get fresh diapers as they need during this time.

10:00 – 10:30  Clean up, finish up use of the toilet, and put on outdoor clothing.

10:30 – 10:45  Gather at one long table for our group snack.

10:45 – 11:45  Outdoor time!

11:45 – 12:30  Come inside, wash hands, eat group lunch.

12:30 – 12:45  Clean up, use the toilet, lay down with a book.

12:45 – 2:30  Rest/nap time

2:30 – 3:00  Wake up time. Use the toilet, enjoy an afternoon snack.

3:00 – 4:30  Transition to go outside for the final part of the day, or spend time indoors for an afternoon work cycle (depending on weather, mood, and energy level.)
