    About Our Program

    At Montessori, we have a two hour program that runs daily from October through May. We partner wtih Northwest Community Centers for this truly balanced whole-child program. 
     
    Our own magnificent Montessori staff provide academic sessions of new learning for the youngest students (3-9s) and new learning plus a homework start for our older students (9-14s). All children rotate through creative extra curricular activities such as painting, knitting, and learning & playing board games as well as more active options such as basketball, swim (4th grade and older) and outdoor games. A light hot meal is served, by our own friendly kitchen staff, at the beginning of the progeram around 4 pm.
     
    Our awesome after school Coordinator, Jasmine, cultivates outside partnerships and coordinates guest teachers to work on projects with our Montessori students. Some of our partners this year are:  Albright Knox Art Gallery, Engineering for Kids, and the Police Athletic League volunteers, Young Audiences and Yogis in Service.


    We currently have approximately 120 students registered in the program and data indicates these students are showing increases on their District Bench Mark Assessments.
     
    Our Extended Learning students were recently featured on Channel 7 news and Buffalo Rising https://www.buffalorising.com/2018/02/trauma-informed-yoga-at-bennett-park-montessori-school-32/     for the Yogi's in Service program. Students are learning life-long habits to reduce stress.
