We currently have a long waitlist for infants under the age of 10 months. We will get back to you when there is a group tour available. If you want to sign up for our waitlist before attending a tour, please mail to our school address a check for $30 (made out to “Steps to Learning”). Families on the waitlist get priority based on the available space.


We offer tours Monday to Friday between 10:00-11:00am, by appointment only. If this time is not possible, we can set up a time in the afternoon between 3:00-4:00pm. It will take at least 30 minutes. We highly recommend that you bring your child on the tour, and any family members who are involved in the decision-making.

Enrollment Terms

We enroll year-round based on availability. When you enroll we require you to commit to a set schedule based on our monthly tuition rate sheet. Drop-ins only apply to enrolled families when hours or days need to be added to the existing enrolled schedule.There is a non-refundable $100 registration fee, and a non-refundable insurance and materials fee of $120 collected annually in September. The annual fee is prorated based on the month the child starts at $10 per month from start month until September if the enrollment falls into another month other than September.
