Almost 3s (must be 2 by April 1)-$$$$

A class tailored for children who miss the cut-off for 3s preschool by just a few months (children will turn 2 before April 1). Our Almost 3s learn three days a week as they play side-by-side with new friends and trusted teachers. Predictable routines foster independence, while singing, painting and pretend play encourage creativity. Young minds grow naturally through exploration and experimentation, with skilled staff at hand to guide and support.  Max. 12 students.
Wednesday, Thursday & Friday 8:45- 11:15 am

New options for enrollment:    Enroll in the Monday/Tuesday 2s class if your child’s birthday falls after April 1, or those days suit your child’s needs and your schedule best regardless of age.  If you feel your older 2-year-old is ready for the fun of three days of preschool, the Wednesday/Thursday/Friday Almost 3s class is your class!  Eager learners who adjust well to variety and social activities may consider enrolling in both M/T 2s and W-F Almost 3s.

How does registration work?

Priority registration is given to current Board Members and past Board Members that have completed 3 years of service on the NFCNS Board of Directors. All registration is conducted in person at NFCNS.

All registrations are processed on a first come, first served basis.

Can I visit the school before the registration date?

Yes! Please come for a visit and bring your little one to see the classrooms, meet our teachers, and stay and play for a while!  See our school in action, ask questions, and find out about all the fun and exciting learning opportunities available for your child.

What if a class is full when I get to registration?

Any class that has reached capacity enrollment will be closed and a waitlist will be available.  For waitlist details please contact NFCNS Director, Heather Burns at director@nfcns.org.

What do I need to bring to enrollment?

All required paperwork is available onsite at registration, but you can streamline the process by printing and completing the enrollment contract in advance.  Deposit by check or credit card is required at the time of registration.

What if I change my mind after enrolling?

At the time of registration, you will be required to sign a copy of the NFCNS Enrollment Contract which outlines the NFCNS withdrawal and refund policy.  All withdrawal inquiries should be sent to the NFCNS Director.

Does NFCNS offer any type of scholarship?

NFCNS strives to make early childhood education an option for all families regardless of their financial situation.  We have a fund that is used to offset tuition costs for those families facing financial hardships, be they temporary or ongoing.
