Eligibility

Dhruva at the art tableWe begin accepting applications on September 1 of the year prior to your child enrolling. Children applying for the Tuesday/Thursday class should be 3 years old by September 1 and toilet trained by the beginning of the school year. Children applying for the Monday/Wednesday/Friday class should be 4 years old by September 1.

ESNS has 16 students in the Tuesday/Thursday class and 18 students in the Monday/Wednesday/Friday class. The number of openings available each year varies, as alumni families and current families have preference for enrollment, and because ESNS attempts to maintain a gender balance in each class, if possible. 

ESNS does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, sex, disability, national or ethnic origin in its operation or programs.
