COVID-19 Information and Updates

Updated December 10, 2020

Frequently Asked Questions

Are you open?

Aldrich is currently not in session due to COVID-19. Office hours can be made by appointment by emailing


Aldrich classrooms are anticipated to reopen in September 2021. This status will be continually reviewed and reassessed as the circumstances and pressures of the pandemic change around us, but we anticipate that we will not be able to offer programming this school year.

Can I schedule a tour?

Abbreviated in-person tours for individual families will resume in January 2021. You can schedule one by clicking the button below. Please delay or reschedule your tour if you or a member of your household has symptoms of COVID-19.


If you would prefer to connect virtually, email us at and one of our Directors will contact you to answer all your questions and show you our space remotely.

When can we enroll for next year?

Priority enrollment for Aldrich families will begin on January 6, 2021. Families who were enrolled at Aldrich for the first time in 2020-2021 are eligible for priority enrollment.


Open enrollment for the public will begin on January 19, 2021.


In-person registration will look a little different this year to ensure a safe environment for all of us. Doors will NOT open until 8:30am, to minimize crowding indoors.  Please maintain social distancing while waiting in line. Families will enter through the main entrance (Door M) and proceed down the hallway to Playroom 1. This will allow space for people to spread out inside. Instead of reviewing Enrollment Contracts with families, the Enrollment Contracts will be numbered in the order they are received and processed in that same order.  Families will receive Enrollment Confirmation via email.  Families will exit out of the Playroom 1 exit.

Why can't we enroll for extensions?

Current COVID safety guidelines recommend that children remain with a core group and not mix with other groups throughout the course of their day.  Because the Extension Programs, which include Early Bird, Lunch Bunch and Kids Club, do not align with criteria, we have decided to not offer these programs until those guidelines have changed.  Our hope is to get these popular extensions added on before the 2021-2022 school year begins, but we will communicate this information with families as soon as we can!
