Junior Explorers Program
Natural Start Preschool offers the Junior Explorers program for preschoolers who will be 3 years old by December 31st of the academic year for which they enroll. Children must be potty trained.
The Explorers program is offered for preschoolers who will be 4 years old by September 1 of the academic year for which they enroll. Children must be potty trained.
Some exceptions are available for children with birth dates close to the cut-off dates. If you would like to request an exception please contact our Director.
An annual Registration Fee of $200 is due at the time of enrollment. $75 of this fee is nonrefundable and the remaining $125 will be applied toward the tuition payment for your child's first month of preschool. If your child is withdrawn from preschool before their first month of attendance, the entire $200 Registration Fee will be nonrefundable.
The last month’s tuition (June) is also due at the time of registration.
Paying the registration fee and last month’s tuition reserves your child’s place in class for the entire school year.
The last month’s tuition can be applied to early withdrawal as long as the 30-Day Notice of Withdrawal or Enrollment Modification form is signed and submitted at least 30 days prior to the date of intended withdrawal. Please refer to the Tuition and Fees Agreement in the Forms section of this website for further details.
September’s and all other tuition payments are due monthly, by the 5th day of each calendar month.
The one-time, nonrefundable annual Materials Fee is to be paid directly to Natural Start Preschool by the end of your child’s first week of attendance. Payment may be given directly to your child’s teacher or our director in the form of check or cash. Please make checks out to Natural Start Preschool.
To register for the program please contact the South Bellevue Community Center at (425) 452-4240. You will need to submit the completed Registration Agreement, the last month’s tuition deposit and the $200 registration fee at the time of registration.
Please submit the Registration Packet (which can be found in the Forms section of this website) and the one-time materials fee directly to Natural Start Preschool no later than your child's first day of preschool.
