Aftercare is available to all DMS students, Monday through Friday from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
*Please note that there is no aftercare on days with an early dismissal or school holidays.
The aftercare program offers homework time and structured enrichment activities. As always, there will be plenty of outdoor play and a healthy snack.
Monthly and Weekly Aftercare Costs:
Pre-pay for full-time after care (M-F): $400 per month**
Daily drop in rate: $30 per day
**The pre-pay rates apply if you pay no later than the 5th of the month.
(It is the policy of DMS that any student who has not been picked up from their classroom by 3:10 p.m. will go to aftercare and his/her parents will be charged the daily drop-in rate.)
Prompt pickup is a must!
We bill an additional $5/MINUTE if you are late picking up.
Note: Aftercare is a service offered by Desert Montessori staff, and is a school-run program. As such, checks should be made payable to ‘DesertMontessoriSchool’ or ‘DMS’. Please do not pay fees directly to the aftercare teachers. You may pay in advance for aftercare, if you wish. Families not paying advance will be given a bill by the front office. There are no refunds given for student absences in aftercare.
