OPEN Enrollment for WINTER/Spring 2019 session

Beginning Oct 26, 2018, any remaining spots available will be offered to OPEN Enrollment registrations received (first-come, first-served based on date registration was received).

If your child did not get a spot and you'd like him/her to do drop ins, please complete a registration for the class(es) you are interested in. Your child will then be on our WAITLIST in the event a permanent spot or drop ins become available, at which time, we will contact you to see if your child is still interested and available. 

Please note there is no obligation to be on a WAITLIST, financial or otherwise.

Contact us at 415 939-8911 if you have any questions or would simply like to speak directly.

Frequently Asked Questions about ROOTS

3 hour drop off.

We spend all time outdoors filled with adventures, exploration, Safety, Fun and Respect.

All children attending a ROOTS class must be potty trained, in underwear and bathroom independent.

Snacks and Clothes

SNACKS: Please send your child in with a small, healthy snack and their own water. (Please note we honor a NO-NUT policy in all Nature Nurture classes).

WHAT TO WEAR: Play clothes. Durable, if possible, as well as long pants, closed in shoes with a good waffled sole, socks, sweater and/or jacket. Brimmed hats are also helpful.

RAINY DAYS: On any day it IS raining, LOOKS like rain, or HAS rained, please send your child in with rain gear: boots, jacket and even rain pants if she has them. (Rain gear makes all the difference in the world keeping kids warm and dry while sloshing through mud, jumping in puddles and even squatting on the ground while rescuing (returning) a worm from the sidewalk to his family and home in the dirt!).  

Please note umbrellas are not carried at Nature Nurture as we like to hear and feel the dripping rain on our rain hats and hoods!

EXTRA CLOTHES:
As we (and our clothes) sometimes get wet, muddy, or simply soiled from being out and about in nature, please feel free to bring a change of clothes for your child when you pick him or her up:  
pants, socks, and even shoes if your child will be going somewhere other than home after Nature Nurture.
Yes, there is a $150 non-refundable deposit.

WITHOUT Purchase of Refund Insurance:

No refunds. Sorry, no exceptions.

Missed Classes and Makeups:

Unfortunately, due to our small class sizes and filled classes, we have had to discontinue our missed classes / makeup policies.

In order to accommodate your children's and family schedules, we have worked very hard to incorporate and match the holidays given at SF-based preschool, Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten classes.

No refunds or makeups are given for missed classes. (Sorry, no exceptions.)

* credit does not include non-refundable deposit or refund insurance.
