**February – June 2021 Update** Using the Bellevue School District’s schedule as a guideline, Natural Start Preschool’s plan is to follow a similar, gradual return to in-person learning schedule starting the week of February 1st. We are planning to reopen Natural Start with an all-outdoor class offering on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00am-12:00pm. Once we have a sufficient number of students in attendance, we will increase our classes to include a 3-day and 5-day section for the remainder of the preschool year. This plan will allow us to commit to our February start date and subsequently expand our class offerings when it becomes feasible for our program to do so.
If you would like for your child to be placed on a waitlist for the opening of the 3-day program or the 5-day program, please contact our director at NSPDirector@outlook.com.
NOTE: Since COVID-19 led to a shortened school year, the June 2021 tuition payment will be prorated to reflect the 2-week June attendance period.

Payment of Tuition and Fees
A one-time Registration Fee of $75 is due at the time of enrollment.
The last month’s tuition (prorated for June 2021) 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 remainder of the school year.
The last month’s tuition can be applied to early withdrawal as long as the Enrollment Modification or Withdrawal Form is signed and submitted at least 30 days prior to the date of intended withdrawal. Please refer to the NSP Tuition and Fees Agreement for further details.
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 on your child’s first day of attendance. Payment may be given to your child’s teacher or our director in the form of check or cash. Please make checks out to Natural Start Preschool.
