"The greatest gifts we can give our children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence."
- Maria Montessori
Notice: MAP Suspended for Fall 2020
Because our after school program would likely bring together students who would otherwise have spent their day in different, carefully cohorted groups, we are not able to run our normal Montessori Afterschool Program (MAP) in the fall. We know this may present challenges for some families, but the health and safety of our community is our number-one priority.
Montessori Afternoons Plus (MAP)
BHMS offers a rich variety of classes within our afterschool program called Montessori Afternoons Plus, or MAP! The program is divided into 3 trimesters.
MAP Drop-In Care
If you have a last minute emergency, are running late for regular dismissal or simply need extended care after school, we provide daily MAP Drop-in Care. This is after school care provided by BHMS MAP staff from 3:00-6:00pm and includes: a healthy snack, arts & crafts, playground or gym free play time and extended opportunities for your child to interact within new social groups and develop new friendships.
To have your child participate in drop-in, simply email Ayana Crawford, the Director of Athletics & Ancillary Programs. The cost for MAP Drop-in Care is $15/hour and is billed monthly.
MAP is open to both BHMS students and children attending any neighborhood school.
