General 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/Caregivers only)

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

STEP TWO: Submit an Application

Enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year begins February 1st, 2020 at 8 am. Families who have attended a Group Tour will receive a link to our on-line application. Applications will be processed in the order in which they are received and require an $100.00 Registration Fee to be considered complete.

A waitlist will be started for all programs that fill, and families will be notified if/when a spot has become available. There is no fee required to hold a spot on our waitlist. Waitlists are for the currently enrolling year only; they do not roll over into future school years.

All families will receive a Registration Packet in May by e-mail and must complete, sign, and return, along with your child’s last month’s tuition deposit by June 1st, 2020.
