Details at a Glance
Sweet River Bamboo Preschools & Nurseries are year-round enrichment programs offering exceptional care for children 3 months to kindergarten ready.
Our kinship age ranges can vary slightly based on the needs of our community and the spaces we inhabit. Nursery kinships generally offer care to children 3 months to 3 years old.
Children who enroll in a nursery kinship remain there until sometime between 2.5 to 3.5 years old, depending on personal readiness, when their birthday falls in the year and on space availability at a preschool kinship.
Preschool kinships offer care to children 2.5 years and up. Children who are 2.5 years or older when they join our community may enroll in a preschool kinship and remain there until they are ready for kindergarten.
Hours of Operation
Unless specified otherwise, kinships run full time, 8:30am-5pm. On a case-by-case basis, we can accept children into care beginning at 8 am at some locations. Please note any requests for early drop-off on your inquiry form.
2, 3 or 5 full days per week. Our enrollment options are based on availability. Children may be picked up at any time throughout the day. On occasion, we can accommodate a one-day or four-day per week enrollment.
We value diversity and understand its significant contribution to the richness of community for all involved. We welcome people regardless of race, color, ethnicity, religion, national origin, gender identity, and sexual orientation to join our community.
What’s Included With Tuition?
For children comfortably eating table food: Our Full Day Program offers three organic whole-food meals included with the price of tuition.
Participation in our Seasonal Celebrations:
Each year, Sweet River Bamboo hosts 4-8 seasonal celebrations marking the changing of the seasons. These events are magical and open to currently enrolled families. Friends of our community may join us for some events with advanced notice.
Our Adult:Child Ratios:
SRB staffs better than the required state ratios.
SRB Ratios: Adult:Infants = 1:3/4 Adult:Toddlers = 1:4-6 Adult:Preschoolers = 1:5-8
“When I connect with a child, I see the whole universe reflected in their eyes and am in awe of their existence, every time. Being fully present with embodiment, wisdom and love is the consciousness I am immersed in when I am with children and with which I founded Sweet River Bamboo upon.”
~ Founder, Sahra Alizadeh
