- Children must be at least 2 years old at time of enrollment
The 1st Step…
We encourage you to schedule a visit with your child; visits are conducted by appointment only. Please contact us at 617-819-4432 to schedule your visit. We will be happy to meet with you and your child to enjoy an initial “meet ‘n greet”. During this time we will discuss your child’s interests and needs as well as your goals and expectations. We will also go over our policies, procedures and philosophies in order to make sure we are a great fit for your family.
The 2nd step…
After you have visited with your child and determined that Holistic Beginnings is a great fit for your family, you will then be asked to complete and submit an application.
Admissions to Holistic Beginnings is open to children regardless of race, creed, color, culture, national origin, religious beliefs, spiritual beliefs, marital status or sexual preferences. It is important to us that we are able to meet your child’s needs and that this will be a happy and enriching environment for him/her. We believe that school is an extension of the family and so we also hope that our school philosophy is consistent with your family values.
The 3rd step…
Parents will be notified of their child’s acceptance by phone and email. Upon acceptance, parents will have 2 business days to accept the position and another 3 business days to submit the required deposits as listed below. Should these deposits not be received within 3 business days, the student’s space will be forfeited and made available to the next family on our waiting list.
Our Waiting List
In the event that our program is full, it would be worth it to get on our waiting list for we also accept children from our waiting list during the school year should a spot become available. We also highly recommend placing your child on our waiting list even if your child is not old enough to enroll yet. This will help to increase the probability that your child will be accepted when he/she reaches 2 years old. Registration for our waiting list is on-going. In order to get on our waiting list, families will be required to fill out our online Waiting List Registration form. Following the notification of an opening, families will be required to immediately schedule a tour (if you have not toured already) and submit an application within 2 business days.
Tuition & Fees
A non-refundable deposit equal to 1 month’s tuition is due within 3 business days of acceptance to guarantee your child’s spot. This deposit will be credited to your child’s last month of enrollment. Three business days is the longest we will hold your child’s spot. If this fee is not received within 3 business days, the space will be forfeited and made available to the next family on our waiting list.
Note: This deposit is to hold your child’s spot; it is separate from the first month’s tuition. The first month’s tuition payment is due on or before your child’s first day of school.
A one-time, non-refundable registration fee of $150 is also due along with the above deposit. This fee is dedicated to curriculum supplies and materials.
