New Family Enrollment Information

Each winter we get excited about hosting tours and sharing information with parents and our early learning community. Due to the nature of our programming, we require that all families interested in enrolling join us for a guided tour. We want to ensure that you have all the information you need and give you an opportunity to ask questions.

Outdoor classrooms are unique and differ greatly from traditional settings. They also require a different level of commitment from both the children enrolled and their families, so we want to make sure we are a good fit for what you are looking and hoping for in your child’s early years at school.  We hope you will join us!

STEP ONE: Attend a Guided Group Tour (Parent/Caregiver only)

This is an opportunity to learn about our programs, tour our outdoor classroom spaces, meet our teachers, and ask questions. Parent/Caregiver only is best but we understand if children need to come. Babes in arms are welcome, as always.

COVID-19 considerations: We ask that you wear face coverings for the tour. We ask that you leave children home for this event to help keep our group size low.  Please keep a safe distance when possible.
