*If you are too early, you will need to hang outside and provide supervision. There’s no inside waiting area. Best to wait in your air-conditioned car!

Mondays / First day of class

On the first day of class, you are required to park and walk in with your child to the classroom to sign them in. This way you can meet the site directors, your teacher, see the classroom, and we get to meet you!

Walk in with your nerd each day and sign in. On Friday, the last day of class, you will have your Nerd Showcase first thing at the beginning of class. 

Little Nerds: Grades 2-3

Walk in with your nerd each day and sign in.

Big Nerds: Grades 4-7
