Enrollment Options
 The regular MDS school day is 8:00 am - 3:00 pm. There are two scheduling options, either full-time (Monday through Friday), or part-time (attending Monday-Wednesday or Thursday-Friday). While our Montessori program ends at 3pm, children can enroll in our extended day program until 4pm, 5pm or 6pm. Activities in the program vary, but may include outdoor play and movement activities to foster gross motor development, cooking, arts and crafts projects, walks around the neighborhood, and fun classroom-based activities. When enrolling, parents may choose whether their child(ren) will be full-time or part-time, and if they would like to sign up for extended day, dependent on availability.

Enrichments
In addition to choosing their own activities during the classroom work cycle, children enjoy daily scheduled outdoor time and special activities, such as gardening, music, movement, art, and zoology with the Nature Company.

At MDS, we take advantage of our close proximity to Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Public Library with trips to these local treasures and other rewarding sites throughout the borough -- and sometimes beyond!
