Participation Guidelines

Homeschool Safari is a drop-off program for homeschooled children ages 5-12 year. It is important to us that your child receives the best experience. As such, we hope that you will help us by honoring the age guidelines.


Check-in for each class begins 5 minutes before the start of class.

For the safety of your children, we will only release your child to the person/s you list during registration. If there are emergencies/last-minute changes, please notify educators at drop-off.

Drop-off/Pick-up Locations:

  • 5-6 year olds: Waterfall Room
  • 7-9 year olds: Water Lab
  • 10-12 year olds: Dove Room

Check-out for each class begins at 3:50. Adults picking up must have a valid photo ID. Please honor our pick-up time. A $5 late fee will be charge for every 15 minutes after 4:10.


All sales are final. No refunds will be offered unless class is cancelled due to low enrollment. Rescheduling depends on class availability and may only be done once. Rescheduling fees may apply.

If you have any questions regarding classes or registration, please email [email protected] or call 515-974-2556.
