Daily Schedule

Our daily schedule is designed to meet the needs of as many families as possible while also providing consistency for the children in our care. The Full School Day is 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM. All School Day enrollment is full-week (Monday through Friday exempting holidays, Family Guide Conference Days, and Program Development Days).
A Partial School Day is available for children not-yet-kindergarten-eligible with families that would prefer that they nap or rest at home and who would otherwise nap or rest while at school. The Partial School Days is from 8:30 AM - 1:15 PM and includes time outdoors or in our indoor gross motor space and lunch.
Three flexible Extended Care options support families who require consistent or drop-in care from 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM; consistent Extended Care Sessions can be scheduled three, four, or five days a week in most cases. Our School Year, Summer and Break Session child care options all follow the same basic daily schedule. Please see the table below and Our Programs pages for more details. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.


We offer fully-implemented Montessori education and child care at Community Montessori Columbus during our School Year Session following a schedule compatible with the traditional Columbus City Schools (CCS) calendar. The 2022 - 2023 School Year Session covers 37 full and partial school weeks from August 22rd through May 26th.

In addition to our School Year Session, CMC offers a Montessori-based Summer Session as well as Break Session Care on most normal business days CMC and CCS are not in session. The 2023 Summer Session will cover 10 weeks from June 5th through August 11th. Break Session Care is offered to currently enrolled families on a first to sign-up basis throughout each School Year Session, see calendar below for specific days. Fees paid for each session of care are unique, all enrolled families are invoiced on the first of each month, please see our Sliding Scale Fees page for details.
