Preferential admission priority is given to current members, siblings of current members, and alumni, respectively. All other applications are generally considered in the order filed, however, we reserve the right to diversify admissions based on enrollee age and gender. Parent interviews are not required and enrollee children are not required to come in for a play date.
After your application if filed, your point of contact will be the Admissions Coordinator. We typically confirm Fall Session admissions in March.
Due to the high volume of applications, we generally do not notify denied applicants; however, pending applicants are welcome to contact the school to check their status. Based on our waiting list, applicants can often determine session availability and the likelihood of desired enrollment.
Laurel Hill Nursery School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, ethnic origin, special needs, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression in administration of its employment policies, educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and/or other school administered programs.
We offer two sessions of summer school. Summer session enrollment is generally lighter relative to regular sessions. If your incoming child meets the age requirement, Summer School is a great way to acclimate them to the school, teachers and with the added benefit of a smaller class size. For summer session dates, please contact the Admissions Office.
