Children enter the program at three to five years of age and must be toilet-trained. The minimum student:teacher ratio is 10:1. Applications for enrollment are accepted at any time. Enrollment decisions are based largely on balancing the class according to age group and gender. Highest priority is given to current students and siblings of other Harmony students. Admission decisions are also influenced by a need to ensure a balanced and diverse group of children within each age group. We accept applications without regard to race, religion, sex, national origin, or disability.
New students begin at the start of the academic year in the fall. All students are enrolled for the full year (12 months). Families may take a vacation of one to two months and pay a non-refundable, monthly holding fee equal to one third of their normal monthly tuition to hold their child’s space. Parents must inform ECP staff by May 15th of any given year. The schedule changes in the summer; our afternoon teacher leads a very active program with an emphasis on lots of field trips, swimming, and outdoor play. The ECP is open from 7:45 AM to 5:30 PM and students bring their own lunches. We close for Winter Break, Spring Break, and for one week before the academic year begins in the fall. Fees are $525/month. If 8% of your family’s gross monthly income is more than $525, you would pay that amount, up to a maximum of $675/month.
