Program Details

At Wheeler, we understand that parents are looking for an exceptional educational experience coupled with the need for an affordable program that provides high-quality care for their family. The Nest at Wheeler program was designed to meet both these needs!  Parents may choose from a range of flexible options, including three-day, four-day, and five-day options, as well as full (7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.) and half (7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.) days. 

The Pre-Kindergarten program is a five-day program. 

The Nest is open from 7:30 am. to 5:30 pm. each day. We offer afternoon care and families can drop off as early as 7:30 a.m. All children must be potty trained to attend the program.

Rates (2022-2023)

* Note: The annual fee is based on the School Calendar. Weeks are not prorated.

Registration Information

We are delighted to enroll a limited number of children to participate in our nature-based early childhood education program. Enrollment is determined through a lottery process.

All families interested in attending the Nest at Wheeler for the 2022-2023 School Year first need to complete the ‘Application to Register’. While the initial application period for 22-23 has passed, prospective families can still fill out the form to be placed on the waitlist for our enrollment lottery. To register, the following conditions must be met:

  • To attend our Nursery Program, your child must be 2.9 years of age by August 31, 2022 
  • To attend our Pre Kindergarten Program, your child must be 4 years of age by August 31, 2022

All families who are not initially selected will remain on our lottery waiting list. As spaces become available, additional names will be drawn. We should note that our Nursery program, in particular, currently has a long waiting list, but we are still happy to have your information in the event space become available.

Families interested in Wheeler’s Kindergarten program will follow a different enrollment process coordinated through Wheeler’s Enrollment Office:
