Extended Care

Greensboro Montessori School offers extended care through the Children’s After-School Activities program, simply known as CASA. CASA supports our families’ busy lives by providing an extension of the Montessori environment before and after our academic day. Subject to availability, CASA is open to all Primary, Lower Elementary, Upper Elementary and Junior High students on days in which they attend class and School is operating on a normal schedule.

Students participating in CASA are divided into age groups matching those of their Montessori classrooms. During CASA, students enjoy age-appropriate, enriching activities that inspire imaginative, creative and cooperative play. This approach allows students to decompress after the rigorous academic day while still developing social, emotional and cognitive skills in a safe, respectful environment. Last but not least, students enjoy a daily nutritious afternoon snack provided by the School.

CASA Programming

All-Inclusive CASA: All-Inclusive CASA is ideal for families who need care before and after school, five days a week. This bundled program also provides continuous care from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on many days when the School is closed, such as teacher workdays, parent-teacher conference days and select holidays (as noted on the School’s academic calendar). Students enrolled in All-Inclusive CASA may participate in Early-Bird CASA beginning at 7:30 a.m. and enjoy After- School CASA until 6 p.m. The program is further enhanced by after-school enrichments (e.g., art, music, athletics, etc.) and an abundance of outdoor play, providing fun, safe and physically engaging activities throughout the year.

Early-Bird CASA: Early-Bird CASA is perfect for families who only need care in the morning before school starts (as early as 7:30 a.m.).

After-School CASA: After-School CASA is the solution for families who need after-school care on certain days of the week. Contracts are available for one day or three days of After-School CASA per week. Please note, After-School CASA does not include care
on days when the School is closed but All-Inclusive CASA is open, even if the day falls on one of a family's contracted days of the week. Families with After-School CASA contracts must register in advance for our All-Day CASA service, which is subject to availability.

Drop-In CASA: Subject to availability, Drop-In CASA enables families to use CASA on an hourly basis when the School is operating on a normal schedule or on early dismissal days. For the School to provide appropriate staffing, our Drop-In CASA service requires advance reservations made by telephone, email or in person at the front desk.

All-Day CASA: Subject to availability, All-Day CASA enables families to use CASA on days when the School is closed, but All-Inclusive CASA is open (e.g., teacher workdays, parent-teacher conference days and select holidays). For the School to provide appropriate staffing, our All-Day CASA service requires reservations to be made at least one week in advance by telephone, email or in person at the front desk.
