Afternoon Preschool and Morning/Afternoon Care

Morning Care 7:00 to 8:00 a.m.

Morning care is offered beginning at 7:00 a.m. for students. 

Afternoon Preschool: 12 noon to 3:30 p.m.

The Afternoon Preschool program from 12 noon – 3:30 offers students, who are not yet age-eligible (as defined by the Commonwealth of Virginia) for our Montessori Kindergarten program, the opportunity to continue their learning experience in the afternoon. This program is designed to extend the learning day and to vertically align the afternoon curriculum with the educational, social, and emotional developmental needs of our youngest students. The program provides a structured educational environment where theme-based learning, literature, art, creative play, and music activities foster growth and development following a similar structure to the morning Montessori program.

Extended Day: 3:30 to 6:00 p.m.

Green Hedges also offers an Extended Day Program for all students from 3:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. This program is responsive to the varying tempo of the afternoon, and thus offers a broad range of activities including a supervised study hall, indoor/outdoor play, and the opportunity to join clubs, and participate in sports programs.

Unplanned Drop-in

Students who are dropped off between 7:00 a.m. and 7:45 a.m. or who are not picked up after school by 3:45 p.m. will automatically be checked into Morning Care/Extended Day by the on duty teacher. This is to ensure student safety. Drop-in charges of $20 per hour are applicable.

Late Pick-up Penalty

Students picked up after 6:00 p.m. will be charged $1.00 for each minute after 6:00 p.m., not to exceed $25.00.
