Application Process

Battery Park City Day Nursery is a private non-sectarian preschool, licensed by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.  Children are admitted without regard to race, color, religious creed, handicap, ancestry, national origin or sex.

While we have put a pause on in person tours, we can schedule Zoom tours with prospective parents. After the Zoom we will schedule a time for you to come see your child’s prospective classroom along with the back yard. Scheduling a Zoom tour is the first step in the application process.  We do not interview or pre-test applicants.  Instead, we explain our policies and philosophies carefully and allow parents to decide whether the Nursery is a good match for their family.  This allows for a diverse mix of children in the classroom. 

Parents interested in a July or September start date should schedule a Zoom tour from October to January.  Preference is given to families currently enrolled or siblings.  New children are admitted on a “first come” basis.  We do enroll throughout the academic year as long as space is available.  The summer contract is separate from the academic year contract. You do not need to attend for the summer in order to secure a space for your child in the academic year.

A complete application includes submitting an Application Form and a $75.00 application fee.  Space cannot be offered without a complete application.
