Our classes are multi-age; we seek children who self-propel in an environment that fosters collaboration and community. TKG reserves the right to determine whether the program is a good fit for the family and the program.
There is a $55.00 non-refundable, one-time application fee. Contact us for more information.
We would like all applicant families to visit the school and see the philosophy in action. This tour is for parents/guardians only.
TKG is a collaborative community. Community is built through the involvement of various school duties and activities. Fundraising and special events that require parent participation, not only to keep tuition and fees low, build the bonds between members of the community. This is also a good time for you to communicate your goals and expectations of the program – you will have the opportunity to hear first-hand the philosophy, expectations, and commitments that are part of being a member of the founding community. You will be able to have all your questions addressed and should come away with a realistic understanding of what TKG can offer your child.
Students will visit the classroom on a regular school day. The purpose of this meeting is for Teachers to observe students in a group setting as well as create opportunities for connections to other students and teachers.
If TKG recommends this visit, a teacher will visit you at home, or a location of your choice, and get to know your child personally. The benefit and purpose of this visit is to understand your child’s developmental level, learn about their interests and assess the student’s connection to currently enrolled students.
We may contact student’s current/former teacher for additional information and will notify you in advance if this is necessary.
Parents will be notified regarding the student’s enrollment status, once the appropriate meetings have been completed. Contact us for more information.
After enrollment is confirmed, a tuition contract is required to be signed and returned within 14 days. A non-refundable Registration fee of $150 plus the first month’s tuition is due at the same time.
