Visiting Our School

Toddler V under log 0015.jpg

Anyone interested in early childhood education and care for their children is welcome to visit our school and its beautiful wooded setting on the Pine Hill campus. Tours are scheduled regularly and include brief visits in our classrooms and time for conversation with our director to learn more about our program and how we can best serve your family. 

Naturally, parents and grandparents of enrolled children are welcome to visit their child at any time once coordinated with their child's teacher.  Breastfeeding mothers are encouraged to come in to nurse their baby whenever possible.

Local families with young children are invited to join A Child's Nature families and teachers for our Family Soup Nights and seasonal festivals throughout the year.

Enrolling Is Easy

Five Steps:

1.  schedule a visit

You are invited to visit our campus and receive a brief tour when considering A Child's Nature for your family. Please fill out the form on our home page, call, or email to schedule your first. You will receive a tour of our classrooms, discuss how we can best serve your family, and receive an enrollment packet.    

2. Complete All Enrollment Paperwork And Submit Application and Enrollment Fee

Fill out our enrollment contract, submit health forms from your pediatrician, and complete other necessary paperwork such as a brief biography for your child, and emergency contact forms.  All forms must be submitted before your child's first day with us. Once we receive your paperwork along with the application fee ($25/child) and enrollment fee ($100/family), you place will be reserved and we will schedule a visiting day for you and your child in the classroom.

 

3.  Spend Time in the Classroom

One morning visit for you AND your child in the classroom is required before your child's first day. We have found when parents visit the class with their child, the child experience less stress and a smooth transition into our program. During your visit, you and your child will experience daily life at our center.  Your child will have an opportunity to engage in both indoor and outdoor activities, meet the teachers, enjoy a delicious home-cooked morning snack, and play with new friends.  You will have an opportunity to talk further with the director and teacher about your child.  You will also receive information on practical details such as what to bring for your child's first full day.

4.  Submit Your Deposit

Pay the required deposit equal to one month of care. This deposit is due on or before your child's first day.   

5.  Welcome to our community!
