Before & After Care

girl on slide head firstFHM offers optional, tuition-based Before and/or After School Care (BAC) for the convenience of working families.  Advance registration is required as spaces are limited and fees are non-refundable. Our Before & After Care Program is licensed through the Colorado Department of Human Services: Childcare Division.  Approximately 25% of our students participate in our Before & After Care Program each year.  Tuition for this program is separate from and in addition to costs for any other programs.

*To accommodate the need for smaller group sizes and time for additional cleaning, Before and After Care will be reducing our hours to 7:30am - Start of School for BC and End of School - 5:30pm for After Care.


All of our Before & After Care staff members are employees of Free Horizon Montessori and undergo the same hiring process and background checks as required by law.

Before School Care

(7:30 a.m. – start of school day):  During Before Care, a myriad of materials and projects are available.  Families may also get breakfast while in Before Care from Jeffco Food Services. This is a relaxed period where children can unfold slowly into the morning. Families can access an online menu through the Jeffco website or make payments through SchoolCafe

All students are invited to drop-in to Before Care starting at 7:30am. Students enrolled in Before Care are granted early access to their instructional classroom, so there is no mixing of cohort groups. Please complete the Drop-in Request form at least 2 business days prior to your requested date.

After School Care

(end of school day - 5:30 p.m.):  Children staying after school may be enrolled in our After Care program.  Activities vary daily, but may include: cooking, tech lab, reading, group games, neighborhood walks and free-choice activities in the classroom.  An afternoon snack (such as cheese and crackers) will be offered during After Care.  

After Care Drop-in is only available to students ALREADY enrolled in the After Care cohort groups (Ms. Casey's Shooting Stars class and the Elementary/MS After Care class) as a method for adding occasional additional days. All other students remain with their classroom teacher until picked up, and will incur a $1 per minute late fee if not picked up by the end of dismissal. AC families, complete the Drop-in Request form at least 2 business days prior to your requested date.
