About HOST Hours

By enrolling a child, it is believed that the family is committed to the Montessori Method of early childhood education and supportive of the School. We ask that each family commit to a minimum of twenty-five (25) hours of service to the School each year, which includes professional services, skilled labor, and various classroom and office related tasks. This service time is referred to as HOST hours (Helping Our School Time). Although it is preferred by the school that these hours be spent in active participation, it is possible for the family to ‘buy out’ of the HOST hours, in part or in their entirety, at a charge of $20.00 per hour not served, At the end of the school year, families will be billed $20.00 x number of hours not completed. HOST hours will not be carried over from one year to the next.

HOST jobs will be posted as needed at school. Please stop in the hallway and sign up for any jobs your family would like to do.

If you have time  this summer, we have several jobs to spruce up the place to make it beautiful for the children!  Contact Holli for more information!
