REGISTRATION INFORMATION: No registration forms will be accepted prior to 8:00 a.m. on Monday, March 4th. Registration is always a busy time.  If you don’t hear from us, assume you got the days you requested.  We suggest taking a picture of your completed registration form for yourself so you remember what those days are!  As the forms come in, we number them and that is the order used to fill the daily class rosters.  While all currently enrolled children and their siblings are guaranteed space, if you want specific days, don’t wait until the end of the week to register.  Please list a first and second choice schedule so that we can best accommodate you!
Please note the 2019/20 school year will run from August 15, 2019 to May 29, 2020.
Registration for families on our current waiting list begins Monday, March 11.   Open registration for all new families begins Monday, March 18.

Thank you all for working with us to create a viable emergency texting system through the GroupMe app.  Always feel free to contact the office or your child’s teachers with any questions.
We can’t believe it’s already registration time for next fall!  It feels like this school year has just begun yet when we look at your children, it’s clear that a lot of growing has gone on since September!  Our oldest classes look so crowded all of a sudden, not because there are more kids, but because they’ve all just gotten so big!  Our three year olds are gaining confidence by leaps and bounds, always eager to jump into the next activity and we love how our youngest, our “babies”, are becoming so talkative – We finally get to find out what’s been going through those little heads!  Even siblings that were in carriers in September can now wobble to the office to choose their daily sticker.  We can’t wait until they’re all Growing Tree kids!
