Thank you for your interest in the Kaplan Nursery School. Our application for the 2020-2021 school year is now available below.
Upon submitting your application, you will attach a family picture to send along with the $70.00 application fee.
Once we receive your application, you will be invited to a small group tour. In addition, we will set up a time for you and your child to come for an Individual Family Visit. We ask that both parents (if applicable) attend. During the family visit, you will meet with a school representative to discuss your child, the school, and any questions or concerns you might have.
Children must turn two by October 31, 2020 in order to be eligible for admission to the Nursery School for the 2020/2021 school year.
For younger children who miss the cut-off for enrollment, we offer the Bridge Program & Toddler Program through the Sutton Place Family Center. You do not need to apply to these programs; they are registration-based and are first-come, first-serve.
Kaplan Nursery School is a member of the Independent Schools Admissions Association of Greater New York (ISAAGNY). We follow all ISAAGNY guidelines and dates throughout the admissions process; this includes the opportunity to participate in an Early Notification Program. We offer this option to Sutton Place Synagogue members, siblings of KNS students, and those children enrolled in the Sutton Place Family Center Bridge and Toddler Programs.
Please note that membership at Sutton Place Synagogue is required for all families, regardless of religious affiliation, whose children are enrolled in the Kaplan Nursery School, upon enrollment in the school.
Admissions notification letters, per ISAAGNY guidelines, will be sent via email on Thursday, February 27, 2020. Early notification letters will be emailed no later than Friday, January 17, 2020. Families who are eligible and wish to opt-in to the Early Notification Program need to inform us by Monday, December 2, 2019.
I look forward to meeting you and your child!
Director, Kaplan Nursery School
