Child Drop-Off and Pick-Up

Montecito has a circular drive, which can become congested during arrival and departure times. Therefore, the drop-off and pick-up times are staggered by 15 minutes, as indicated in our Schedule of Classes and Fees and in our Parent Handbook. Traffic flow is counterclockwise in the circle. Turn right upon entrance. Our speed limit while on campus is 5 mph. For you and your child’s safety, a teacher will escort your children to and from the car. Please Note: A late fee will be assessed if your child is not picked up by 6:00 p.m. (see the List of Classes and Fees and Admissions Agreement for details).

New drop-off and pick-up protocol and locations for camps

  • Fours Camps (on T/TH, M/W/F or M-F)– The Pond Room – drop-off time is from 8:30-8:45 am and pick-up time is 11:30-11:45 am (unless your child is staying all day or into the lunch time and after camp time).  This camp is meant for children who are currently four and are entering into a fours class in the next school year.  If you’re a drop-in or back-up care parent and your child is four, this is where your child will attend during their time at Montecito.
  • Twos Camps (on T/TH, M/W/F of M-F)– The Meadow Room – drop-off time is from 8:30-8:45 am and pick-up time is 11:30-11:45 am (unless your child is staying all day or into the lunch time and after camp time).  This camp is meant for children who are currently two and are entering into a twos class in the next school year.  If you’re a drop-in or back-up care parent and your child is two, this is where your child will attend during their time at Montecito.
  • Mixed Age Camps for Preschool (ages 3-5) and Elementary School Children (K-5th) – The Forest Room— drop-off time is from 8:45-9:00 am and pick-up time is 11:45-12:00 pm (unless your child is staying all day or into the lunch time and after camp time).  This camp is meant for children who have finished the fours program and are going to Kindergarten next year, children ages 3-5 who want to attend a mixed age daily preschool camp, and children who are in elementary school (K-5th).  If you’re a drop-in or back-up care parent and your child is within these age groups, this is where your child will attend during their time at Montecito.
  • Threes Camps (on T/TH, M/W/F of M-F)– The Garden Room – drop-off time is from 8:45-9:00 am and pick-up time is 11:45-12:00 pm (unless your child is staying all day or into the lunch time and after camp time).  This camp is meant for children who are currently three and are entering into a threes class in the next school year.  If you’re a drop-in or back-up care parent and your child is three, this is where your child will attend during their time at Montecito.
  • Your children’s names will be listed on the white board in front of each classroom.  So when driving in, you can look for your child’s name.
