Applications for admission to the Beacon Hill Nursery School, accompanied by a $55 application fee, may be submitted online beginning September 1 of the year prior to entry and must be received by January 15. Late applications will be considered after March 20, space permitting.
Applications for siblings and alumni must be received by November 15 to receive special consideration.
Once the application has been completed, parents can schedule a visit to the school online, via their Application Checklist in the online portal. These visits take place beginning in mid-October and continue through the early winter. The visit consists of a tour of the school (for parents who have not previously attended an open house), an opportunity to observe in a classroom and an interview with the executive director. Please note that these visits are for adults only as school is in session during this time.
Admissions decisions are sent out on March 10th. A signed contract with a deposit ensures a child’s enrollment for the fall. If the school is unable to offer an enrollment contract due to the number of applicants, the child may be placed on our waitlist. Families placed on our waitlist will be notified as soon as an appropriate space becomes available.
Visits for enrolled children
Toddlers and Preschoolers visit the school in early September, just prior to the start of school. During these visits, children and parents will have the opportunity to visit their classroom and meet their teachers. These visits take place in small groups and serve to make the transition a little easier.
