Use this page to help you register your child for the Fresh Air Learning elementary program.
Registration for the elementary program begins with a phone call with our program director and a class visit. Please email tricia@freshairlearning.org to inquire about program entry. The spaces available vary from year to year. Children register for the entire year from September to June. We sometimes have mid-year spaces available as well.  Interested in learning more? Contact us, and we'll set up a time to discuss the program.

Fees and Schedules

Our elementary program is for families who enrol with the Powell River School District through the Island Discovery Program. The other three days a week, families follow their own learning plan at home and in the community.

Fees

This program is a collaboration between the Powell River School District and Fresh Air Learning. Using home learning funds and parent fees, we rent spaces, purchase supplies, and hire extra teaching staff to provide an excellent staff to student ratio. 

Registration and Withdrawal Policies:

  •  Upon registration, families will pay the first month's tuition. This is non-refundable.

  • We require one month's notice should you decide to withdraw. If you withdraw, we will refund the rest of the year's fees less the one month's notice.

  • As it is very difficult to fill spaces at the end of the school year, after March, our fees are non-refundable. Please note that fees are paid in advance for each term in three similar-sized payments.
