Our goal is to place every child in the class of their choice. However, sometimes certain classes become full and we have to create a waitlist.  Normally, most children on the waitlist end up in the program they desire, but we cannot always guarantee that will happen. We offer priority registration to currently enrolled students, those with siblings currently in programs, children of the Meadow Makers and Middles, and grandchildren of Associates.



March 20: At the time of registration, a $25 non-refundable registration fee is required per child, per program (Visa/MC/Amex)


March 21-24: You will be contacted by mid-week to join a program or be notified you are on the waitlist.


March 26 or upon receipt: Your non-refundable deposit is due on receipt and or no later than Friday, March 26, to secure your spot. Please pay via e-check. We do not accept credit cards for deposits/program fees.

Please note: Payment in full is due for new registrations received after June 31st or acceptance of a wait list opening.
