Programs and Fees

A $50 non-refundable application fee is due upon submission.

A nonrefundable deposit of $1000 for one child and $1,500 for two or more children is due upon submission, and will be subtracted from your total tuition amount.

Your first tuition installment is due on 8/14/2017 or before 9am on your first day of school if you enroll after 8/14/2017. Subsequent installments are due on 10/20/2017, 1/15/2018, and 4/9/2018.

Tuition totals reflect the 41 week school year. Tuition will be prorated according to the number of weeks left in the school year for students who start after the first day of school.

Drop-off Programs

Drop-off programs are for children between 3 and 7 years old. Children must attend at least two days, because the forest terrain is genuinely challenging. We can accommodate up to 16 children each day.

2 Day Program:
Thursdays and Fridays

3 Day Program:

Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays

5 Day Program:
Mondays through Fridays

Parent/Child Program

Children under three attend school with a caregiver. The Parent/Child program and the Drop-Off program meet as one large, lively class. Half day and full day programs are offered in order to accommodate naps. Parent/Child pairs may attend on any day(s) of the week. We can accommodate 5 Parent/Child families on any given day. Parents attending with more than one child under three will add $205/child to annual tuition totals.

Enrollment Policies

Either $1000 or $1,500 of your first tuition payment is considered your non- refundable deposit.

The first two sessions will be a trial period during which parents may withdraw children from the program and receive a tuition refund. Tuition is not refundable after the first two sessions.

The Forest Playschool reserves the right to withdraw enrollment due to delinquency in payment.

Children enrolled in drop-off programs must turn 3 by August 15, 2017 and must not turn 7 until after April 1, 2017.

All children participating in drop-off programs must be potty trained.
