Ruffing offers various options, depending on the age and
level/grade of your child.

Before School Care

Ruffing offers care before school, beginning at 7:45 am and ending at 8:15 am. Staffed by a member of our Montessori-trained faculty, children begin their day in a classroom environment and are able to work, read, play cards, board games and socialize. Parents can pre-register or use as-needed for their children enrolled at Ruffing. Our Before School Care program is only for students in Extended Day program and up.

Siesta Care

The Siesta Care program extends the school day for 3 and 4 year old children enrolled in the Traditional Children’s House program (i.e., morning only) until 3:15 pm. Children enjoy a parent-provided lunch, followed by an option to nap or engage in baking, sewing, puzzles, crafts, nature walks or other Montessori work. Siesta Care is available for an additional fee and enrollment for this program is limited. Please contact Nital Subhas, Director of Admissions, for availability and pricing.

After School Care

After School Care is available from 3:15 – 6:00 pm for students ages 5 and older. Montessori-trained teachers provide a snack, followed by engaging activities, such as crafts, baking, clay, board games, crafts, legos, sewing, gym and playground time and optional homework time. This option can be combined with after school enrichment classes (AHA! After Hours Activities) for Elementary and Middle School students. After Care is available for an additional fee and enrollment is limited. Please contact Sue Pacini for pricing and availability.
