Prime Time Program

The Saint Maur International School Prime Time Program has been established in response to the needs of a growing number of families requiring supervision for their young children, pre-school Montessori to Grade 5, from 7:30 a.m. to 08:15 a.m. and from 3:15 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on specified school days.

Prime Time Options

Early Morning

  • Morning Prime Time is available only for parents whose child is enrolled in the afternoon Prime Time as we have been able to secure an experienced personnel to look after a limited number of children each morning from 7:30 to 8:15 a.m. in the Montessori Lower Rec Hall (LRH). Please take your child to the Lower Rec Hall (LRH), any time after 7:30 a.m.
  • The monthly fee is ¥10,000, charged monthly from August to May included, over 10 months. There is no partial payment for this service, even if only a few days in the month are used.

After School

On-site supervision of children from pre-school age to Grade 3 by some of our staff in the Montessori Building between 3:15 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.

Until they are picked up by parents, children are supervised while they play, eat snacks, rest, read or do homework; academic support, however, is not a part of the Prime Time Program. Pre-school children are picked up from their classrooms at 3:15 p.m.; children in Grades 1 to 3 may report to Prime Time directly at 3:20 p.m. or immediately after club activities end at 4:30 p.m. On Early Release Wednesdays, children may report to Prime Time at 2:30 p.m. Please have your child bring a snack if possible.

Any parent who wishes to make use of the service without wanting to commit for longer term, can simply register for one day, few hours use. The fee is calculated by the hour only. Please register via this link or by using the button on this page, both of which will be activated in August.
