By encouraging a deeper exploration of the world, children will increase their engagement and develop their own personal areas of interest.

The fun never stops at Norbeck Montessori! After an exciting day of learning, we provide our students the opportunity to explore new interests and interact with their classmates outside of our typical daytime learning program. Each year, we work with a variety of highly-vetted third-parties to offer our Montessori students the best, fun activities for their age level! Although our extracurricular activity offerings can vary from year to year, here is a sample of the amazing programs we have offered our Rockville area students in the past.

Little Chefs Cooking Class – Cooking with Preschoolers

Does your child like to help you in the kitchen? Do you enjoy their enthusiasm, but dread the mess? Let Relish Catering handle the messy cleanup with our Little Chefs Cooking Class! Our little chefs will embark on a journey into making pastry, pretzels, pizza, chocolate candies, pasta, and much more! As the children enjoy the fruits of their labor, they will also learn about general nutrition, the different kinds of food, what they like and don’t like, the basics of food preparation, and kitchen safety.

Children’s Martial Arts & Karate Class

Our Karate program incorporates all of the protocol and disciplines of a typical martial arts studio, but in a unique, fun manner for our preschool and kindergarten children ages three, four, five, and six. By participating in this extracurricular activity, the children will learn about respect, self-control, hand/eye coordination, concentration, and goal setting. The physical benefits are profound, as children will practice kicking, punching, blocking, stretching, and jumping during each interactive class.

Step Forward Sports Soccer

Whether your child is new to playing soccer, or has already developed a love for the game, they will benefit from our Montessori school’s extracurricular soccer program! Step Forward Sports’ Soccer program is a creative, high energy and age-appropriate introduction to soccer. The program is designed to help your child master developmental milestones, appropriate for their age. Step Forward Sports focuses on teaching methods designed to create an atmosphere that is fun and engaging. At the end of each session, you will see happy, confident, and sweaty kids who are eager to come back for more.


At Norbeck Montessori, we understand just how important physical activity is to a young child’s development. Throughout our extracurricular Yoga program, our preschool and kindergarten students learn to improve their balance, coordination, flexibility, and the ability to consciously relax. At our Rockville Montessori school, Yoga classes aren’t about twisting into a pretzel. Here, our extracurricular Yoga class is a playful activity. One thing our students love is letting out a big roar in lion pose!


Young children benefit from any physical activity that helps them develop their motor schools and let out some energy, and our gymnastics and dance activities do just that! This extracurricular option for Norbeck Montessori students encourages a healthy lifestyle in a fun way that doesn’t feel like work! Gymnastics and dancing gives students exercise while incorporating strength, flexibility, balance, speed, coordination, and discipline. Teaching students basic health and fitness will set the foundation for a happy, healthy future!
