Visit. Discover. Apply.

We begin accepting applications in August, one year prior to the application school year. Our application process is simple and welcoming.

STEP 1:   We recommend you visit before you apply. Your visit gives us an opportunity to learn more about your child and your family’s interests and needs when it comes to an early childhood program. It also gives you and your child an opportunity to discover what Chappaqua Friends Nursery School is all about.

Children are not screened for particular abilities, disabilities, or personality traits. We rejoice in diversity. We respect and encourage the uniqueness of every individual.

STEP 2:   We then ask each interested family to apply based on your child’s age. Applications from new families are processed in the order in which they are received. A gender balance is considered when classes are composed. Acceptance letters for children from new families are sent out after the end of November. Applications received after December are processed within two weeks of receipt.
