Tours and Enrollment


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

Tours take place

EVERY Wednesday

Promptly at 9 am

with the exception of the following dates: September 27th 2016 and November 23rd.  

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, allowing us to inform you of any changes of scheduling if we are aware in advance or follow up with you after the tour if necessary.

 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 the many ways you may enroll your child in the future.  Children may not attend the tour (per licensing standards).  However, we are happy to offer “play days” to all pre-registered families. Play days allow children to become familiar with the school by visiting the campus a few times before the school year begins.

Enrollment for the 2016-2017 school year (which starts with our 8 week summer program June 1, 2016) is enrolling starting March 1, 2016 for those families who have attended a tour.  While enrollment is limited for the current school year with a pending waitlist, we welcome you to save your spot for the upcoming Summer and Fall sessions. Enrollment fills quickly but we are happy to welcome many new families to fill our abundance of available slots for the 2016-17 year!

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 in every visiting adult!  Hope to see you soon!
