The Montessori School of Downtown has an after-school program unlike any other school in the metro area!
Your time is important. So is your child’s. At Shipra, we believe that students deserve a well-rounded after school experience that allows them to learn, laugh, and play in a dynamic environment. That’s why we are the only after school program that includes award winning enrichment programs every single day of the week. That’s right. You don’t have to sign up for any additional programs or pay any additional fees to ensure that your child gets to take part in our exciting enrichment programs, because we believe that all students should be able to take part in activities that will help them learn and grow as individuals. Is your child ready to become an Afternoon Adventurer?
During the week, your child will have the opportunity to enjoy:
Smart Core Labs
We focus on key SMART pillars. The focus on just STEM gets only half the results. Science, Math, Art, Robotics, and Tech helps us create a future-ready curriculum, via the inclusion of the Arts component into STEM. This creates a fun and approachable way of learning for kids. A child who is unfamiliar with computer science and coding is given an unintimidating opportunity to explore said subjects, if they are first exposed to these topics with something that they are familiar with-like art and hands on building.
Amazing Athletes Training Academy is a cross-training, game-based sports program designed to engage children in active wellness through advanced physical fitness challenges and interactive sports lessons. Our coaches work with each child to help them strive for their personal best. Each class engages athletes in non-competitive, sport-specific training for focused development.
The Little Medical School
The mission of Little Medical School is to teach children about the exciting field of medicine. Through hands-on demonstrations, crafts, and games, children are actively engaged as they explore the world of medicine. Through interactive learning, kids will discover how the body and organs work, how to use medical instruments, administer first aid and even tie knots like a real surgeon. Each child will receive a diploma as a graduate of the Little Medical School after completion of the course.
Reach for the STAAR
Standardized testing can be stressful for kids, but we have proven methods of showing students that tests like the STAAR are nothing to be afraid of! We provide tutoring to students to help them to develop fun strategies to "win" points while taking the STAAR, as well as ways for students to improve their analytical skills, test anxiety, and time management.
The Marvelous Art of the Masterpiece
In our weekly art series, students will learn about the masters, from Monet to Andy Warhol, as well as the famous art movements. Students will try their own renditions of some of the world's most renowned art, all while learning new artistic techniques and having fun!
