Children should learn to care for their bodies and be in touch with their own health.
Children should know how Mother Nature provides for us and why we must protect her.
The whole-child experience of body, mind and creativity enables growth with confidence.
I am so excited to give you some updates on the coming school year!
As we’ve all experienced, this is still a time of uncertainty, and hope is growing again. Bali is slowly reopening and the staging plan is in place for monitoring safety levels as we come back into community together.
The Spring School team and I have been busy creating magic for this new school year. Many options exist, whether we are still in quarantine or life resumes in full bloom.
Our current plan is to deliver online learning options to our students from August - October. If all goes well, we may even be meeting back in the school building sooner than that! Based on the government's current re-opening plan for Bali, many local schools plan to open around July 15th with a shifting system according to the number of classes. Our school better fits the description to consider reopening around the July 27th evaluation timeframe. We want to ensure the greatest safety for the children and that our teachers are set up for success when we reopen the building. This will be dependent on multiple factors which we will be taking into consideration as we determine the best option for our Spring School community.
Then in January we should all be celebrating in our brand new school building! I’ll be sharing more information on this over time, but let’s just say that it is “one of the best learning facilities in Ubud” according to one parent who had a sneak peek tour.
With all of these upcoming changes we want to offer as much support to the community as possible, so we have created some incentives that will hopefully give you the confidence to continue learning with us, and also help us continue to grow.
Tuition Fee DISCOUNT
The global economy has been hit hard by COVID-19, and we want to honor that budgets are tighter for almost everyone, including us.
In order to create a win-win situation for everyone, we are offering up to 10% discount if you enroll your child(ren) before July 1st. This will help us plan sustainable budgeting and prepare for the new year, as well as help families lower costs.
We are also offering new payment options:
Monthly Auto Payments: This is a great new option for those who need more time to save.
Semester Pay-In-Full: When you choose this option you will also receive “Holiday Activity Packages” for all no-school holidays over 2 days long.
Educational Enrollment Options For Ages 3-6:
As we wait for guidance from our government, we want to provide you with flexibility to choose the best educational option for you and your family. Here’s how it works: When you enroll your child in The Spring School, you’ll start by paying the virtual tuition. Once we begin meeting in-person, rates will increase to the usual tuition rate, with the 10% discount applied for those who registered by July 1st.
Educational Enrollment Options For Ages 2-3:
Online learning has not been especially helpful for our youngest children, so we will not be offering Zoom calls this coming year. However, once our in-person classes resume we are ready to rock! So go ahead and choose either “Registration of Interest” (no deposit) if you have questions or “Registration for Enrollment” (with deposit) to hold the space for your child once we resume.
The New Spring School in Payogan
We are thrilled to announce that we are ahead of schedule with the renovation and construction of our new school building in Payogan!
I’ll be sending out more information in the coming weeks, as well as inviting you on a virtual or in-person tour of the property so you can see what we’ve been creating for our community.
We already have two beautiful entrance doors (one for parents and one just for kids!), co-working and lounging space for parents, a multipurpose room for different classes, a teachers’ office, a full-service kitchen, and a rooftop cafe for community building. Next up: amazing classrooms, full playground, garden, swimming pool, and maybe even a labyrinth!
So get ready for this epic new year of growth and celebration together! There is no better time to unite as a community and love on our children. Thank you for your continued support!
