Thank you for your interest in
Noroton Presbyterian Nursery School!
We invite you to join us for an informational session, tour of the classrooms and to answer any questions you may have regarding NPNS. We are a Reggio Emilia infused program working with children from Two thru Pre K.
Please sign up for the orientation day and time that will work best for you. This is a parent/guardian only time.
We ask that you find alternate childcare for your children during the orientation times.
Please keep in mind that children registering for the 2’s program must turn two between January 1, 2020 and August 31, 2020.
Children eligible for the Pre K program will be turning 5 between September 1, 2020 and December 31, 2020.
Children currently enrolled in the 2’s and 3’s are guaranteed a space in the NPNS program for the following school year. Children currently enrolled in the 4’s seeking a spot in our Pre-K program, will need a written recommendation from their current 4’s teacher, and have a birthday that falls between September 1, and December 31 of the following school year.
Please note that children currently enrolled in our morning program have priority for morning spaces. Children in the afternoon program may apply for the morning and will be accommodated on a space available basis.
Orientations for new families are offered in early December and January and may be scheduled online, please follow the link above. The deadline for applications is typically the first week of January. Notification of acceptance into the program (or placement on a waitlist) typically occurs the third week in January
Children are accepted based on a lottery system which follows this priority order:
1. Currently enrolled children, as noted above.
2. Children of NPNS staff / Children of NPC members who are siblings of current NPNS students (i.e. applicants and siblings will both be attending in September).
3. Siblings of current NPNS students (i.e. applicants and siblings will both be attending in September).
4. Siblings of current NPNS students (i.e. only sibling will be attending in September).
5. Children of NPC members who are siblings of previously enrolled students.
6. Children of NPC members.
