Interested families should contact the school to arrange for a tour at staffdrms@gmail.com. We are still enrolling for our toddler group (ages 2-3) and our transitioning young 3’s (must be 3 before 9/1/21) for the upcoming school year.  Applications for the 2021-2022 school year HERE.

Due to the interest in this program and the limited number of spaces, we highly recommend you contact us by telephone (541-633-7299) or email staffdrms@gmail.com, to discuss our program and to determine whether it is a good match for your child. A non-refundable, $20 processing fee must then be submitted with the enrollment application. Enrollment will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Upon acceptance of your child, a signed tuition agreement is required along with an Annual Enrollment Fee of $400.00, to be applied towards the total tuition due, to hold your child’s space.  Please also be aware of and have your child current with the health guidelines as put forth by the Bend LaPine school district and state of Oregon.
