The Monte After Care picks up where school leaves off!
When children step through the door to the Monte After Care, they get a healthy snack, help with their homework, extended time in centers, and the time to play inside and outside while interacting in multi-age groups to broaden their social skills. Our after school program serves our whole community - the Early Childhood Learning Center, the elementary school and the middle school.

What People are Saying...

Lucy Lennox

An unexpected bonus to my children attending Monte Cassino has hands-down been the after school program! The staff has been so accommodating to this mom of 4 (and my ever-changing schedule!) My kids talk daily about centers and their many creations adorn our walls and illustrate the rich learning environment that is present at Monte Cassino. The staff goes above and beyond to ensure my children are in a safe, loving, challenging, and creative environment.
