Additional Policies for Creative Arts Enrollment

Creative Arts Classes during the School Year:

  • Creative Arts enrollment during the school year (September through June) is through a waiting list. Children may get on the Creative Arts Waiting List when they are 20 months old; the age range for school year Creative Arts classes is 2 1/2 to four years old for the morning classes.
  • To get on the Creative Arts Waiting List, please contact us here with your child’s name, birth date, and a parent phone number.
  • Children 3 1/2 or older may enroll at any time during the school year between September and June if there are openings.

  • A non-refundable registration fee of $100 is due upon registration for the school year Creative Arts classes. If the enrolled child remains in his/her Creative Arts space(s) through the end of the school year, the $100 fee will be applied to the June tuition for that school year. If the child leaves his/her space during the school year (or between school years), the registration fee is forfeited.
  • Two weeks notice to the Roaring Mouse office is required if you are planning to vacate your space.
