It gives us great pleasure to welcome new families into our community! We hope you find the following information and outline helpful as you begin the admissions process.
Our only criterion for admission is that the parents support Pono’s philosophy and want to participate in our Community. We strive to maintain diversity of gender, ethnicity, nationality, race, ability, religion, and income in our Community. Children from the age of 2 1/2 to 5 years old are welcome to join the Pono Community. We will expand the age range as the center progresses.
We offer reduced tuition and payment options based on need (see sliding scale section below). Our goal is to be open to all. It is important to note that while meals are not included in the tuition, the meals program is mandatory because it is an integral part of the community building and learning process at Pono. Meals, like other aspects of life and learning at Pono, will emphasize the importance of respecting the environment and our health as we cook organic, natural, wholesome and nutritious meals then commune together.
