Application Process for 2021-22 School Year

Age Requirements:
Three Morning TWOS must turn 2 by September 1 of the year enrolled.
TWO Morning TWOS must turn 2 by November 1 of the year enrolled.
THREES and FOURS must turn 3 or 4 by December 31st of the year enrolled.

Priority for available space in the nursery school is as follows for the 21-22 school year: *
 
  1. For Threes classes the children enrolled in the 2020-2021 TWOS which CNS cancelled
  2. Currently enrolled children and children that were enrolled 20-21 who withdrew because of health concerns
  3. Siblings of previously and currently enrolled children
  4. CNS alumni & children of South Presbyterian Church members.
  5. The general public.

*A weighted ranking or lottery may be used if demand exceeds space.

Categories 1 – 4 must notify the school of their intentions to enroll prior to November 30 of the year preceding the September entrance desired.
 
The general public may phone the school between the first week in October and the last weekday in November to fill out an application for the following year’s enrollment. On December 3, all categories 1-4 currently enrolled students, siblings, alumni & South Church members who have indicated an interest will be assigned classes for the following year. After that the general public applications will be filled in. A lottery is held if more applications are received than places available. After all places have been slotted in, any remaining places will be offered on a first come basis. If you decide to enroll, a $250 deposit will be required by December 10 payable through Zelle or check.
 
You will receive an email by December 5 of your status

1 – YES, 2 – WAITING LIST (1/2 the size of the class), or 3 – NO.

If you are in the YES category, we would love for you to visit a class in session but because of the COVID restrictions we are unable to do that. We are exploring ways to have you visit the school when children are not present – either weekends or after 4:00 pm.
