What to Look for When Choosing a Preschool

Choosing a preschool for your child can be over-whelming. All parents want a place where their children are valued for who they are, where their curiosity is nourished, where they feel safe to take risks and explore, and where they can cultivate friendships. But when you stop in for a brief tour or observational visit, how do you know if this preschool is the right fit for your child?

Very Limited Openings Remain for 2018-19

After our lottery, we have a few very limited openings remaining for the 2018-19 school year. If you are still deciding on preschool for next year, I encourage you to schedule a visit soon. We have started a waitlist for girls who will already be four at the start of the new school year. And yes, openings do often become available late in the summer, so it is worth getting on the waitlist.

Enroll for 2018-19 School Year

We have found that the best way for parents to determine if Wildwood Nature School is a good fit for their child is to see us in action. Please contact us to schedule a classroom visit or to tour at a quieter time.

You are encouraged to schedule your visit within the next month as we will run a lottery for open spots on March 1 and do expect to enrollment to be full after that date.
