The following enrollment information is for our Nature Preschool for kids 3-6 years of age. We look forward to sharing with you the wonderful things that happen in our forest classroom.
Schedule and Tuition for the 2021-22 School Year
In 2021-2022 we will be offering three weekly schedule options. Tuition is calculated for the whole school year and divided into 10 equal monthly payments.
2 days a week, 9 am to 1 pm, Tuesdays and Thursdays, $286/month
3 days a week, 9 am to 1 pm, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, $428/month
5 days a week, 9 am to 1 pm, Monday through Friday, $714/month
If this tuition would be a financial hardship for your family, please enroll anyway! There will be space to share the tuition you can afford on the enrollment form, and we will be in touch in August with options. We are working hard to make our classes available to everyone.
Enrollment Opening Dates
April 1, 2021 for currently enrolled or waitlisted families: An invitation to enroll will be emailed.
April 15, 2021 for new families: At 6 am this page will be updated with a link to our online classroom management system (via Procare), where families will fill out forms, waivers, and releases for their child(ren) online.
Instead of asking for application fees or deposits, this year we are requesting that the entire enrollment packet be filled out at the time of enrollment to demonstrate your commitment to sending your child to Fidalgo Nature School.
Receipt of a complete enrollment packet is required to hold your child(ren)’s place in the class or on the waitlist. Placements into our classes will be made in the order in which your enrollment packet is received. Please follow these steps to enroll:
Review the following documents. You will be required to acknowledge that you have had the opportunity to review these documents prior to submitting the enrollment packet:
Prepare necessary paper or scanned forms. These forms must be signed by you and/or your child’s medical provider. You may print and scan these to attach to your enrollment packet as PDF files. If you do not have a printer/scanner, please proceed through the enrollment forms. You will be able to submit without attaching the forms. After submitting, please email firstname.lastname@example.org right away to make arrangements for delivering your form(s).
Certificate of Exemption (Personal/Religious or Medical). Children may be exempted from immunization with a certificate of exemption signed by the parent/guardian and a health care practitioner. Students who are not vaccinated against MMR will only be accepted with a medical or religious exemption. Children exempted from vaccines will be excluded from care if an outbreak of vaccine-preventable disease occurs.
Medication Authorization. Required only if it may be necessary for staff to administer medications to your child.
