Pre-K Discovery Days

Enrichment programs are available for all students who are enrolled in Bears, 3-Day, 4-Day, or Pre-K classes during the school year.  These programs extend the NFCNS school day, and can be quite popular, so registration is based on a lottery system.

Here’s how it works:

    • You will receive a pre-registration form that lists all the classes you may register your child for, and gives you space to indicate first and second choices for enrichment classes. It can also be accessed by clicking herePlease complete this form and return it to Heather Burns by April 30th, who will give you a receipt. **Important note: It is fine to email your completed pre-registration form to nfcnsdirector@gmail.com – just be sure it is absolutely legible! If you complete 2 sides of the form, please attach them both to the same email. Heather will email you an acknowledgment of receipt. IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE AN ACKNOWLEDGEMENT within 24 hours, please call the school office.
    • Families who have turned in forms will be assigned a random order, and will be enrolled in classes according to that random order. We’ll notify you of the final placements after Friday May 3rd.
    • Completed enrichment enrollment forms and payment will be due delivered by hand by Friday May 10th or postmarked by May 10th. Enrollment is not complete until the forms and payment have been received.

    Please note – not all classes will fill during this pre-registration period. Any available spots will be filled on a first come, first served basis once the lottery is complete.

NFCNS reserves the right to cancel programming due to low enrollment. 

If you are also interested in enrolling your Pre-K student in the Before-Care offerings through the Northfield Park District, you may print the necessary forms by visiting their website here.  Once they are complete, they can be returned with payment directly to the Park District.

Pre-Register for Fall 2019 Enrichment

Classes will be filled by lottery.  Pre-registration forms MUST be returned by 3 pm on May 8th in order to be included in the lottery.  After this date, registrations will be accepted on a first come, first served basis until the program is filled.
