The children participate in a variety of enrichment programs that compliment our Montessori program such as Art Appreciation, Library Outreach Time with the children’s Librarian at the Nantucket Atheneum and science programs with the Maria Mitchell Association and the U MASS Field Station.
In addition the school participates in field trips appropriate for those children attending such as the Festival of Trees, Exploratory trips to the Maria Mitchell Association, UMASS Field Station, school picnics etc. At these times parents are notified in advance of the schedule changes.
