How do I register?

Registration is possible online, through the mail, or in person.  We would be happy to speak with you regarding programs, staff, and appropriate class placement. Please contact our office at 413-585-8010 with any questions.

What should I send in?

The first time you sign your child up for classes, you’ll need to download and fill out and send in all of the forms here.

Can we come in and observe a class/tour the space before registering?

Of course!  Call our office to schedule a time.

Weather/Cancellation Policy

Classes at Whole Children may be canceled due to inclement weather. In the event of poor conditions, check the status of your class by calling our office at 413-585-8010. The recorded message will be updated to relay information about cancellations.

All canceled classes will be re-scheduled during our make-up week or other available dates.


Payment may be made by cash, check, credit card or through Jack Rabbit, Whole Children’s class registration software, which can be found on Whole Children’s website prior to the start of class.

Many of the classes have a maximum number of participants. To guarantee a spot in the class, a deposit or full payment is required. Otherwise, if the class fills up, priority will go to students who have paid; students who have registered but not paid may lose their spot.

If needed, a payment plan may be set up with the office. Payment plans can be flexible, including being set up to pay weekly. Whatever plan is approved, this plan will include the full class price regardless of whether the student attends all classes.


Full refunds will be given for classes that are cancelled.

If a registered paid participant is unable to attend the class and notifies us one week prior to the start of the session, a refund will be made minus a $10 processing / administrative fee.

No refunds will be given once the program has started except under extreme circumstances or for new students trying a class for the first time.


There are limited scholarships available to income-eligible families. Please see front office staff to fill out the forms for scholarship money.

Other funding possibilities

Many families are able to get classes paid for by their school district, the Department of Developmental Services, or other agencies. For more information, talk to Donna Kushi in Family Empowerment at 413-585-8010.
