Application Process

Lincoln Nursery School uses a rolling admissions process. Letters of acceptance are typically mailed out by February.

The steps in the enrollment process include the following: a visit to the school with an Enrollment Committee member, observation with your child of a classroom in session, and a conversation with the director.

The New Student Application form (below) & fee must be submitted prior to scheduling your visit.

All children currently enrolled in the school and siblings of current or returning families (those who have enrolled a child in the past) are offered placement before new children are considered.

Lincoln Nursery School strives to balance age and gender in each classroom. LNS does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, religion, cultural heritage, political beliefs, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, or marital status. Financial aid is available.

Financial Aid

Financial aid is provided  through our annual budget. The goal of financial aid is to make LNS accessible to families by providing assistance when financial resources are limited.

Aid is awarded based on tax returns and financial needs as determined jointly by the treasurer, president, and the enrollment chairperson. Any request for assistance-and its awarding-will be held in the strictest confidence.

Financial Aid Application Process

Financial aid applications for alumni and new families should be submitted with your application or when the need arises. Financial aid awards apply to the core program tuition not for extended day programming.
