Diversity Is Our Strength

Individual Needs

The Natural Learning School and Home School Resource Center welcomes students of any race, color, creed, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.

Students with Special Needs

At Natural Learning School we do not believe in labeling or "tracking" students.  We believe every child is a gift and has the right to fair and equal treatment.  However, due to our size and limited resources, there are children who have needs that cannot be accommodated by our program.  While we are committed to opening our doors (and arms) to every child, we cannot compromise our program to accommodate the special needs of one child to the detriment of the others.


The first step in the application process is to schedule a tour and observation time for parents and potential students. This will allow us to get to know one another and to determine jointly whether our school is the appropriate learning environment for your child. Please contact Dalila Early at Dalila@nlsmemphis.com to schedule a visit.


To enroll following your visit, submit the completed Application Form and the application fee to Natural Learning School, 1992 Nelson Avenue, Memphis, TN 38104. There is a non-refundable application fee of $275.00 for new families to be paid with the application.All returning families will also pay a $275 registration fee yearly. Families do not pay an additional fee for summer camp.

A supply fee of $150.00 is due with the first months' tuition.

Our enrollment is open throughout the year. In the event that a space is not available for your child, you will be placed on a waiting list and contacted as soon as a spot becomes available.

Prospective students: Please fill out our on-line Application for Admission. Please answer all questions and send in or drop off your registration fee.

If you have questions about the form, please email Kandra Kolehmainen at kandrakole@yahoo.com or Dalila Early at Dalila@nlsmemphis.com
