Infant Classrooms (6 weeks-18 months): Our younger infants are in one classroom until they are at least 12 months old and able to walk with confidence. Older infants learn in another classroom across the hall where they begin learning about Montessori works and circle time. We offer 3, 4, and 5 day enrollment options. Toddler Classroom (18 months-3 years old): Our school day operates from 9:00am-3:00pm every day, and we offer 3, 4, and 5 day enrollment options. Additional childcare is available for an additional fee from 7:30am-9:00am and 3:00pm-5:30pm. Preschool Classroom (3-5 years old): Operates in the same manner as the Toddler Classroom. School Age Program (Kindergarten-5th grade): After school program for students who attend Alfred Almond Central School. Students ride the school bus to AMS and a teacher meets the bus to bring them into the building. Students can stay until 5:30pm. We are also open on some full days during February and April breaks at AACS.
