Ijams Nature Play Club (part-time)

This application is for the 2020-2021 school year for Ijams Nature Play Club at Ijams Nature Center.

The Nature Preschool meets Monday and Wednesday mornings from 9:30 am-12:15 pm. The first day of school is Jan. 4th, 2021. The Play Club will follow most of the Knox County Schools holiday calendar unless it makes sense to deviate considering our families' needs.

Once your application has been received, you will receive an email invitation to schedule a tour or attend an open house.

An in-person or zoom meeting with the Nature Preschool Administrator is a requirement for admission.* After the meeting, your admission request will be reviewed and you will be notified via email about the status of your application, invoiced for a $200 deposit to hold your enrollment, and sent an enrollment packet.

*IMPORTANT NOTE* Ijams Nature Play Club students will spend 100% of their time outdoors and/or under primitive pavilions, which will include healthy exposure to the outside elements, and potential exposure to and contact with nut allergens like black walnuts, hickory nuts, sunflower seeds, etc. The class often visits public use areas such as the Visitor Center and Jo's Grove playground on the Ijams grounds. Although the classroom has a nut-free policy, the public use areas and outdoor experiences cannot be guaranteed to be free from contact with nut allergens. Exposure to other outdoor environmental allergens like pollen, mold, grass, and poison ivy is very likely. Safety is always our primary focus, and the Nature Play Club has an intact safety net, policies, and procedures to prevent and mitigate exposure to risk. However, given the nature of this program, parental awareness and caution is important to your child's attendance and success. If your child has allergies or other medical needs, please speak with the Nature Play Club faculty to discuss options for your child's participation.
