Aftercare: Montessori Programme
Aftercare at Newberry takes the form of a Montessori Extended Day Programme, closing at 17h30.
This programme provides children with an after-school care facility based upon sound Montessori principles, such as movement and cognition, order in environment and mind, respect for the child and more – in essence, a child-centred approach in an environment for children that enables them to be independent, active, and learn, but with an emphasis on free play. To facilitate this a qualified Montessori Directress is involved in this environment throughout the afternoon.
All children are welcome to participate in this program, which includes a nutritious meal based upon recommendations made by a consulting dietitian. Healthy snacks will be provided through the afternoon (seasonal fruit, etc.)
