Rules of the Game


Due to the outdoor nature of our program, children must be toilet trained. This means no diapers or pull-ups.

For children who have not had previous preschool group experience without a parent or for children who are new to Cherry Preschool, please contact the Camp Director, Maggie Hessler, before enrolling. We take this position in the best interest of the children as summer camp may not be a good place to work on separation issues.

We strive to create groupings of children based on friendships and to balance the groupings by age.

Absences for any reason do not reduce tuition. There are no refunds for non-attendance due to vacations or illness.

Families of children with disabilities and/or developmental delays should contact, Lindsey Underway, Child Development and Inclusion Director to determine the appropriateness of the camp program for their child.
