Many of our enrichment programs are offered on-site as extracurricular activities during morning or afternoon recess periods. Families appreciate unique opportunities to for their children to access enrichment programs taught by our school staff members or adjunct facility professionals.
We also offer programs through outside professional and community resources such as local museums, libraries, ski areas, and theater groups.
Most enrichment opportunities are offered periodically on a first-come, first served basis. North End Montessori staff members communicate regularly with parents throughout the year as enrichment opportunities arise.
