SUMMER CAMP

SUMMER 2022

Thank you for your interest in Tiny Trees Summer Camp! After we launch the school year 22-23 enrollment, Tiny Trees finishes summer planning. Please visit our Locations page for preschool details, like classroom descriptions and tuition rates, For general enrollment information, please visit our Enrollment page.

OVERVIEW OF SUMMER 2022 ENROLLMENT PROCESS

We prioritize our current students for summer enrollment (for those wanting to maintain their enrollment). After Tiny Trees families have had the opportunity to sign up for summer, we invite our SY 22-23 families to sign up for summer. Next, we open summer enrollment to the public on our website. Please check the capacities below to see program availability. We will start our summer enrollment period with our current families in early April, and summer enrollment will be available on our website April 15th.

Below are the Summer 2022 options. The enrollment form updates in real time, so please click the enrollment form link below for the most current capacity/openings.

We are opening summer enrollment with limited space available until we can assure that we have strong teaching teams in place to support children. As we hire and train additional staff, we will offer new enrollment opportunities for the second summer session, beginning July 25th. We will provide an update on any new summer openings by May 6th.

Eligibility

To be eligible for summer, students should be between the ages of 3-6 years. We follow King County Public Health COVID Recommendations for Child Care, outlined in the the “Guidance for Child Care Administrators” (updated 12/30/21) to guide our COVID Responses.  Guidance is updated regularly. Until further notice, we plan to maintain our COVID 2021-22 school year health and safety measures; all students will need to wear a cloth mask or a face shield when in close contact with others/when physical distancing isn’t possible. All students should be potty independent and comfortable using a porta-potty with minimal teacher assistance. 

Unlike indoor programs, children will need to frequently negotiate layers of clothing on their way to and from the bathroom. Therefore, the ability to regulate toileting is an important skill for an outdoor preschooler to develop with the support of our educators and their families. We make accommodations to include children with known or suspected disabilities or developmental delays in our program. However, we do not have diapering facilities on site. Please contact us at admissions@tinytrees.org to discuss any accommodations needed for your child.

There have been updates to Washington’s School and Childcare Immunization requirements. Children exempted from immunization by their parent or guardian will not be accepted into care unless that exemption is due to an illness protected by the ADA or WLAD or by a completed and signed Certificate of Exemption. The MMR exemption law change went into effect on July 28, 2019. Students who are not vaccinated against MMR will only be accepted at Tiny Trees with a Certificate of Exemption that indicates a medical or religious exemption. Read more about the law on the Washington Department of Health’s Website.

Summer 2022 Waitlist

When a program fills up (has reached the maximum number of students) and its enrollment is closed, families are welcome to sign up on the program waitlist for their preferred program/s. If/when any spots become available in a previously closed/full program, we notify families on the program waitlist. This occurs whenever a spot opens (whether it’s before the full session, or for the second half of the summer). Some programs are more popular than others, so waitlist lengths vary. We cannot guarantee that families on the waitlist will be able to enroll. The summer waitlist will be available for public sign ups when we open registration to the public.
