Admissions & Tuition

We look forward to meeting you! The best way to learn more about the Teddy Bear Club is to take a tour. This year, all admissions tours will continue to be conducted virtually. Details on visiting and our admissions timeline and process can be found below.

Virtual Tours

We are offering virtual tours for families interested in enrolling their children for the upcoming 2024-25 school year. Tours are conducted one-on-one over Zoom with a member of our admissions team. We will explain our philosophy and curriculum, take you on a photo tour of our campus, and share photos and videos of classroom activities. To schedule a tour, please complete the form on this page.

In-Person Visits

Current safety regulations prevent us from holding in-person visits while classes are in session. We will have limited availability for families to come see the Teddy Bear Club in person while our current students are not in the classroom. In-person visits will be scheduled on a family-by-family basis after a virtual tour has been completed and parents have submitted an application for their child.

Admissions Timeline

All applications for new families received before December 15, 2023 will be reviewed at the same time. Placement decisions will be sent to families by the end of January. Any applications received after December 15 will be reviewed on a rolling basis and based on any remaining availability. (Returning students and alumni families have priority admissions before we review placements for new families.)

Within one week of notification that a new student has been accepted for enrollment, parents must return the Enrollment Contract along with the registration deposit. This will reserve a place for the student for the upcoming school year.

The school conducts itself in a professional -- even elegant -- yet down-to-earth manner. I can't recommend it highly enough.
