I'm on the waiting list -- what does this mean?
Due to state ratios, we do have to limit how many children can attend our school. If a class becomes full, we begin a waiting list. To join the waiting list, we must have received your registration form and registration fee. Students are added to our list in the order they were officially registered (form and fee). If an opening becomes available during the school year, we will contact the families on our waiting list in order. If a spot is offered and declined, that student is removed from our waiting list. If a spot is offered and accepted, the enrollment process starts. If no spot is offered to your child that school year, the registration fee will be automatically applied to their application the following year. You will also get early access to registration the following year.
How does snack work?
For our Toddler Community, Children's House, and Lower Elementary, snack is provided to the class by one family weekly a few times each year (depending on class size).
For our Forest School, parents send individual snacks for their child daily.
How does lunch work?
Parents send lunch daily for any student enrolled in our School Day (8:00-3:30) or Full Day (8:00-4:30) programs, and for any child attending Forest Fridays.
What is Forest Friday?
Forest Friday is a monthly half day where both campuses combine at Asherwood Nature Preserve to spend a morning in nature. Parents drop off and pick up at Asherwood, and teachers return to school in afternoon for staff meetings and professional development.
What supplies will my child need?
A list of school supplies (and summer supplies) will be sent to the parent/caregiver email address with our digital Welcome Packet (summer packets go out at the end of May, school year packets go out June 1st).
