Frequently Asked Questions about Enrollment for New Students


Do you have an Open House?

Yes, parents and children are invited to our Open House on Sunday, January 26, 2020, from 12 to 2 pm.


Can I visit when the Nursery School is in session?

Yes, appointments may be made by calling the director, Murnie Leary.


What’s the deadline for new student applications?

March 2, 2020, 12:00 noon.


Is there an application fee?

Yes.  It’s $50.


When will you do the lottery?

We will do the lottery for new students on Monday, March 2.


How will you notify me?

We will send email notification on March 2, and also put paperwork in the mail.


When are deposits due?

Deposits are due on March 13.  The deposit is $500.


What if I don’t get my first choice?

Your child’s name will be placed on our waiting list for your first choice.  We will notify you as soon as a place in your first choice class opens up.  After March 13, when deposits are due, there is often some shifting on the waiting list.


Should I enroll for a class that isn’t my first choice, or is it better to wait to hear?

We give waiting list priority to families that have committed to the school, i.e., they have sent in their deposit for the child’s class even if it is not their first choice.


I have two children applying to HNS this year.  What if they are assigned to different times?

Twins are placed together.  We make every effort to place siblings in classes that meet at the same time.


An immediate family member attended Hingham Nursery School (formerly known as St. John’s Community Nursery School).  Are there any advantages for me?

We guarantee a place in our school to legacies and siblings.  We are unable to guarantee first choice class placement.


As always, your calls and emails are welcome. 781-749-0029, murniehns@comcast.net
