Tours and Enrollment

ALPoE welcomes visiting families, early childhood educators and emerging teachers to tour our progressive preschool

EVERY Wednesday

Tours take place at 9:00 AM

(with the exception of the dates mentioned below) 

All tours are open to the community (sorry, no children) from 9 am sharp to 10:30 am.  No RSVP is necessary. All applicants must attend this tour before being considered for enrollment.

There will be NO TOURS at ALPoE during the following 2019-2020 calendar year:

  • August 1 through 31, 2019( as we acclimate to our new learning community)
  • November 27 ( in observation of Thanksgiving)
  • December 25, 2019; January 1, 2020 (in observation of Winter Break)
  • April 1, 2020 (in observation of Spring Break)
  • May 27, 2020 (for our family picnic).

No RSVP is necessary to attend a tour but we do ask that you email us at or call us to inform us of your intentions to attend.  This allows us to inform you of any last minute changes to our tour schedule.

 Tours start in the Meadow play yard and last a little more than an hour.  You will be able to observe the morning welcome ritual, our beautiful 1.5 acre outdoor classroom, and how teachers help children transition after drop-off into their areas of interest.  You will experience how our use of intentional language and materials support learning and development and how we value the making of community.

Tours will allow visitors to observe programs in both the Meadow and Prairie yard and to learn of the many ways you may enroll your child in the future. 

Children may not attend the tour (per licensing standards as we function as a fully enrolled program and can not add more children to the number we are licensed for ).  However, we are happy to offer “play days” to all pre-registered families. Play days allow children who will be attending ALPoE to become familiar with the school by visiting the campus a few times before the school year begins.

We do not provide tuition scales on our website, but will be happy to quote tuition costs over the phone 661-753-9023 or by written request via e-mail at:

We look forward to meeting you and welcome the most curiously-playful child that is within every visiting adult!  Hope to see you soon!
