Application Process


Requests for Nursery School applications may be made
from the day after Labor Day through October 31.






























To request an application, please call the Nursery School Office the day after Labor Day through October 31 at (212) 744-1400, ext. 230 the year before your child is eligible to attend. Children must be 2 years and 5 months or older (born in April) to be admitted. Temple membership is not required to apply or enroll.

Once we receive your request, an application will be emailed. Upon receipt of the completed application, we will email a date for a one-hour group visit for parents only. At this time, you will meet with the director for an overview of the program and a tour of the school. Tours are held on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10 AM.

At the tour, you will be given a date to bring your child for a school visit. Six children meet for a group play session with four members of our staff. We ask that one parent accompany the child for this appointment.

All decisions will be emailed in accordance with dates set by the Independent Schools Admissions Association of Greater New York (ISAAGNY). Preference is given to Temple members, but membership does not guarantee admission. Temple members receive a $1,000 reduction in tuition.
