THE FERN CLUB AFTERCARE
Enrollment in AfterCare is for a semester or year. While it is not required to enroll now, spots are
limited and families electing to enroll in 5 day preschool and AfterCare will be given priority.
The Fern Club is open 2-6pm, every day the Nature Preschool is in session*. While students may be picked up at any time, tuition is a flat rate regardless of actual pick up time. There is no AfterCare at this time for children enrolled in the morning preschool class.
