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, of the year that they begin and must be fully toilet trained to enroll in the Balch Nature School.  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 through June, with school from 8:00 am until 1:00 pm. After care options are available until 4:00 pm.
