Town & Country Nursery School is open to all without discrimination based on race, gender, national origin, or religious affiliation. All children who turn 3 years old by December 31st of the year they plan to attend, are physically able to attend and will benefit from our program are eligible to apply for admission.
Our Registration process begins in January of the year your child turns three. Please plan to visit our school in January or early February. Sit and observe in any of our rooms or outside. During the school year we conduct tours on Wednesday mornings at 9:30 am. During summer months they take place monthly. You must call ahead to schedule a tour. You can do this by calling Town and Country at 310-375-2829. Rooms 1 and 2 have the youngest and each group is approximately three to four months older as we progress to Room 6 where our oldest children, the five year olds, reside.
If you decide to register your child, you will need to complete the application card selecting a 1st and 2nd choice by the day before our Lottery in early February. If we receive more cards than we have space, a card drawing or Lottery will be held in early February to place new students. The Director and staff members will assign children to appropriate classes. Following the Lottery, any applications remaining after classes are filled will be placed on a waiting list. This waiting list will be used until the following January.
Parents will be notified by mail within a few days of the outcome of the class assignments. Fees will be accepted after class assignments are made. Orientation appointments for new families will be scheduled with our Director for all who are selected in the Lottery. Otherwise, meetings are arranged when requested. Please feel free to ask questions of each of us in the Office; however, the teaching staff must focus solely on the children.
