Outdoor Adventures Summer Preschool 2020

Stepping Stones Preschool 2020 Summer Information

We are excited to have students return to our programming on June 15. Here is a review of our policies at this time, so that families understand what billing will look like for the summer months. We will be returning to our normal operating policies for this summer.

Stepping Stones June 2020:

Program starts on Monday June 15, from 7:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. (please note: this is a change from the originally scheduled start time)

Tuition will be due on June 15, 2020. You will receive your invoice on May 22, 2020.

Because staffing within our new guidelines requires strict adherence to staff/student ratios, we are unable to continue suspending enrollments as we will not be able to guarantee a spot once our summer programming begins.

If you need to withdraw from Stepping Stones summer programming, please note that we will maintain a wait-list for families who are interested in returning later in the summer. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that a spot will become available.

A withdrawal for summer can be accepted through May 22. After May 22, our thirty day policy for withdrawal will go into effect, and your deposit will be applied toward your last month’s tuition.

We will continue with our current monthly invoicing, with a tuition based on the 5 day a week, full day programming model.

Please note:

Our Stepping Stones program will be working closely with Kids & Company this summer. Each core care group for our youngest participants will have 5-year-olds (entering kindergarten) and 6-year-olds (entering 1st grade).

In Hopkins Preschools, our students are at the center of everything we do. When students feel heard, seen, and valued, they can do their very best work - that's why love is one of our core values.

Your child will discover an inclusive preschool community where empathy, collaboration, and kindness are encouraged. Children will develop creativity, confidence, and strong social relationships through play-based exploration of concepts built around their interests.
