Enroll your child in a trial day, or visit a program with your child for a 1-hour free observation.
This step is optional, but strongly encouraged for first time participants.
Please allow at least one week notice for trial and observation days.
After submitting your application you will receive a registration confirmation email within one week of your submission to set up a phone or in person interview with a facilitator for your child's program. If you do not receive this email within one week, please contact us here.
After your interview you will receive an invoice for your registration fee via email. Once the registration fee is paid, your child's spot in our program is secure. This is the only payment due until the first day of the month your child's program begins (see more in step 7).
You will receive an orientation email prior to the start date of your child's program containing important information such as driving and drop-off directions, gear lists, payment information, school calendar, parent handbook, and other paperwork. Most of this information can be found through our parent page and FAQ, but please contact us if you have any pressing questions.
Some programs may have an in-person orientation prior to the start of program. Information about the location, date and time will be sent to you via email if applicable.
Setup your Social Haven account. You will receive an email inviting you to join Social Haven, a convenient app/website we use to stay connected with Nature Connect families. This is our main communication platform. This is where you fill out your child's medical forms, waivers, contact information, and approve caregivers for picking up your child. This is also where you will receive updates from facilitators about your child's program throughout the year.
Tuition payment will be due on the first day of the month your child's program starts. You will receive an invoice via email, and you may choose to pay in full at this time, or to set up a monthly payment plan for a small processing fee. If you choose to pay monthly, your payment will be due on the first of each month until tuition is paid in full. Please call us at 251-747-7846 to set up a monthly payment plan.
Get excited! We look forward to seeing you and your child on the first day of program.
