We at Earthkeeper Nature School do not want a lack of financial resources to be the reason why a family does not send their child to our school. Hence, we will do our very best to provide the financial assistance needed so your child can attend. If you look at our tuition price and think “I can’t afford that” then we suggest you apply for financial aid (details on applying will be available at time of enrollment).
