Families are enrolled on an academic year basis. Children must be between the ages of 3 and 5 years old and fully potty trained by September 1. Families should apply by February 28 for priority consideration. Applications received after this date are added to our waiting list.
The Minneapolis Nature Preschool welcomes families from throughout the metro area. Our organization prioritizes enrollment for currently enrolled children and siblings. We also prioritize the enrollment of Northside Minneapolis residents, Black and Indigenous children and families of color, as well as LGBTQ2S+ identified families as an action step to ensuring accessible early childhood educational opportunities for communities that have been historically and systemically erased, excluded and forcibly removed from nature spaces.
There is a non-refundable enrollment fee due within two weeks of placement or enrollment will be forfeited.
We will notify families of their children’s enrollment status by March 31.
