Nature School Admissions
We look forward to meeting all families interested in our nature program. We accept children between the ages of 2.5 and 6 years. Occasionally children younger than 2.5 may be ready for our program and will be evaluated individually. Caregivers are responsible for appropriately clothing their child based on the weather conditions.
Step 1 - Contact us with your interest.
Step 2 - Attend an informational session.
Step 3 - Fill out an application.
Step 4 - If your family and Urban Woods Forest School's representative both agree the program is a good fit, you will pay a non-refundable deposit which will be deducted from the overall cost of tuition due before the start of the term.
*Submitting an application fee and attending an Informational Session is not a guarantee of admission as many factors go into the decision-making process.
Tuition for our child/caregiver classes can be found here.
Our forest kindergarten program (2.5 - 6 years) is currently divided into three terms (Fall, Winter, Spring) and offers a one or two day option.
Tuition must be paid in full prior to the start of the term of enrollment or with approval may be divided into 4 - 5 payments. We require tuition to be paid electronically.
We are currently registering for the 2019-2020 school year. Please email us with you interest today and we will respond promptly.
We are committed to sharing our programs with as many children as possible and have established a scholarship fund, Sowing Seeds. Our intent is to foster a deep connection and love for nature in children through our full immersion outdoor forest school but recognize the financial commitment may create a burden for some families. If you feel your child and family would benefit from our program but are unable due to financial circumstances please contact us for a scholarship application as we may be able to provide tuition reduction. Please note, filling out an application is not a guarantee of being awarded a Sowing Seeds Scholarship as decisions are based on available funds and priority of student needs.
