Priority enrollment takes place before the start of the fall term. If space allows, students may also be admitted during other times of the year, please contact the Director to see if space is available for your child.
A tour of the school is required before admission is considered. Students must be between 5 and 11 years old to attend. Parents are required to complete enrollment forms and provide immunization and child-wellness paperwork prior to the first day of class.
Our school runs year-round, though we do close throughout the year for holiday breaks. Classes are held Tuesday through Friday from 9:00AM-4:00PM. Students attend class four days per week.

Meals & Snacks
Students are expected to bring their own nutritious lunch each day. We have a fridge and microwave on site. Our program provides two healthy snacks each day and filtered drinking water is always available. If your child has allergies or special dietary requests, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate their needs. If we are unable to accommodate your child's needs, we allow families to provide their own snacks.
In order for a child to succeed in any learning environment, they must be well-fed, well-dressed, and well-rested. We ask that children come to school having had enough rest the night before, having already eaten breakfast, and having proper clothing for the weather that day. Our program spends a lot of time outdoors, so depending on the season, this may mean summer attire or full winter gear. Please contact the Director if you have any further questions.
