Important Admissions Information:
Thank you for your interest in Spruce Street Nursery School. This year our Admissions Open House will be held on October 26th, from 9:00am-noon. We hope that your family can join us to meet Christie Guevin, Director, Leslie Rhodes, Assistant Director, our classroom teachers, and current parents who will be available to give you a tour and answer any questions that you may have.
After the Open House, the online calendar will be available so that you may to schedule your Family Visit - please feel free to call us to schedule the visit as well. The Family Visit is an integral part of the application process. These visits, scheduled for the quiet hours after the bustle of the school day, give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the school and get a more detailed tour than is provided at the Open House. Please bring your child so that you can see him/her in the environment, and we can get to know your family a bit better! Visits are scheduled from November through February.
Applications are accepted for all of our classes until January 15th. The Acorn class, which serves children 2-2.9 years as of September 1st, is not the only entry point at Spruce. The Willow class, which serves children ages 2.10-mid-threes, is also an entry point. Each year, about half of the new students at Spruce enter the Willow year. We often have one or two openings in the Maple (older 3s- young 4s) and Oak (Pre-K) classes as well. The Application Fee may be paid by check or by Paypal.
Thank you again for your interest in Spruce Street. We look forward to seeing you!
