The school day is split into Core school day – 8:00am – 4:30pm, and Extended school day – 4:30 – 6:00pm / 6:30pm (Peekaboo location). The summer holiday is each August.
The Extended School Day program of Otkrivatel Montessori School provides a continuation of the Montessori philosophy of mutual respect, independence and cooperation to which the students are accustomed in the classroom. The clubs and extra classes play a large part of school life, with a wide variety of activities available to primary and elementary students. The clubs are part of the Extended day option, which is available 1 to 5 days a week. A list of clubs is emailed through the Otkrivatel Monthlink to parents before the school year and is available at the online system.
Throughout the year, specialty instructors from the community offer optional classes in subjects such as dancing, theatre, yoga, music, piano, arts, classical ballet, folk dancing, hip-hop, swimming, football, tennis, aikido, climbing, robotics and world languages. These classes vary from year to year and are offered to different age groups and at different levels of expertise. These classes are selected and supervised by the Manager Communications and Events and School Level Coordinators. A student can be enrolled for an Extended Day for the autumn term or the school year and for building consistency and responsibility, the classes are not changeable during the school term. New enquiries for Extended day (both enrollment and un-enrollment) are accepted between for the spring term. There is an extra charge for the clubs and classes payable at the beginning of each term.
