To enroll your child at Dodge Nature Preschool, please complete an application form and submit it with a $75 non-refundable application fee. Enrolled families receive a complimentary family membership to Dodge Nature Center starting June, 2013.
Applications will be processed in the order in which they are received. Placements are made in consideration of optimal learning conditions, such as class balance of gender, age, and diversity. A new application for enrollment must be made each school year, including families that are presently on a wait list.
Once placed in a class, families must pay a non-refunable deposit to hold placement. The deposit will be applied to the May 2014 tuition. This deposit is non-refundable regardless of child's attendance.
If you have questions regarding the application process, please contact Brinsley Davis by e-mail, call 651.455.4555, or stop by the front desk.
