Application and tuition

At the Balch Nature School, we nurture every child’s innate curiosity about the natural world through playful exploration and discovery in all seasons.

Children must be 3 years of age by October 1, 2017, and must be fully toilet trained to attend the program.  Applicants will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.  Prior students will be given precedence. We will notify you by mail of your child’s acceptance status.

We are in session from September 2017 into June 2018, with school from 8:00 am until 1:00 pm.
