Registration and Cancellation Policies

Nature Preschool


Based on recommendations from state and local public health officials to help slow the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), in the event we are unable to offer in-person classes at the Garden, you will be eligible to receive a full refund for any tuition payments made for cancelled classes.

If Nature Preschool has a delayed start, tuition will be prorated. If Nature Preschool is open, and you decide that you do not want to send your child to preschool due to COVID-19, you will receive a refund for any tuition payments made. Please notify Ann Halley of your withdrawal by July 30 at (847) 835-6801 or After July 30, tuition payments will not be refunded. Registration fees are not refundable.

Programs canceled by the Garden due to low enrollment will be fully refunded.

Preregistration is required one month in advance for school. Register online. Credit card payment is required for online registration. Checks or credit cards are accepted as payment.
