Enrollment for the 2018-2019 school year

In keeping with our progressive educational philosophy, Open House Nursery School is an open door to young children and their families. No screening, interview, or formal application determines admission. All that is required is interest, as established by taking a tour, filling out a brief application form, and paying an application fee ($100).

Our classrooms are organized by age. Two-year-olds must have turned two by June 1, 2018. Preference is given to siblings and children of alumni. Open House is inclusive of all children and families. If we have more applications than openings we conduct a lottery.

To sign up for a tour for the 2018-2019 school year please fill out THIS FORM. After you fill our the form, you will be contacted in October and offered several tour dates to chose from.

*Educare is an 8-6 program that includes all days that Open House is open, including vacation and summer camps. Open House is closed most days that NYC public schools are closed, a week in June, and an additional 3-4 weeks in August & September. When the school year begins in September, there will be a shorter, phase-in schedule for all students, so 6:00 days will not be immediately available.  

A non-refundable reservations deposit is required for all programs. Payment schedules vary with programs.
