​2024/2025 CLASS REGISTRATION UPDATE 

Currently enrolled students and their siblings have priority enrollment March 4-10, 2024. First choice schedules may not be available for every family, including returning families, ​​but we will try to honor preferred schedules whenever possible. General enrollment for new families opens March 11, 2024. Families already on the waitlist when general enrollment opens will need to re-submit an enrollment packet but will retain their position on the waitlist if they register by March 15. 

This page will be updated on March 11th @ 8am PST 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. If you prefer paper registration, please email: kylie@fidalgonatureschool.com with your mailing address or call #360.375.3809. Currently enrolled families will access registration forms via email to their address(es) listed in Procare.

 

We do accept enrollment packets on a rolling basis throughout the year except for the months leading up to March 2025, when we close enrollment in order to update our forms and processes for the coming school year.
