Student Academic Year Tuition

Annual tuition may be paid monthly or in one lump sum by September 30, 2021.

Monthly tuition payments start the first day of the school year, (or the week your child starts) with subsequent payments due by the 15th day of each month.

Forest School does not follow the type of curriculum that pushes toward standardized tests. Students will learn at their own pace.

This will allow parents to choose when their child starts classes. You can register and pay the $75 fee to hold your child's place if you decide not to start class until September.

“We think the Forest Kindergarten program is of vital importance for our son.  It’s not just an activity that he really enjoys nor is it a subject matter that can be taught in the classroom. I strongly feel that he gained immeasurably from the program last year.  He really came out of his shell, gained self-confidence and resilience.”

Our daughter was in the first Naturally Nurtured Nature class during the 2020-2021 school year, and has absolutely loved it! She adores Ms.Dawn and being in nature, which she did not have much experience with at all before. She has gained so much independence, strength, and confidence being in this environment all year long, in the heat and the cold. The kids are able to learn about plants and bugs, growing vegetables, climbing trees, making forts all over the woods and creek, and are right alongside cows, horses, and donkeys. This experience doesn’t exist in-town, so getting your kids out of the city and into a wooded farm setting with a very passionate and devoted teacher is an incredible experience for them to grow in! We will be there all summer for camp, and will return during school year breaks. We feel so lucky to have found Ms.Dawn and her forest school!!
