Reminders and Updates
Registration for the next school year has been under way since mid-October. We have been giving many tours to families in the community, and only a few spots remain! Please reach out to us with any questions regarding enrollment for 2019-2020.
Our last maintenance session of the fall semester will be held on December 7th from 7-10 am. Each family is required to attend one of three maintenance sessions scheduled for the fall, or pay a fee of $150. If you are unable to attend a session but would like to fulfill the required maintenance with a special project, please talk to Francie.
Miss Chocolate orders will be delivered on Tuesday, Nov. 19th. Emily Kasel organized the fundraiser, which raised over $4,000 for the school! Thank you for your participation.
According to NYS law, all children must have current immunizations in order to attend GCNS.
Garden City Nursery School is registered with the NY State Department of Education and Office of Children and Family Services. These designations set us apart from other nursery schools and display our commitment to providing a healthy and safe environment for our students to learn. These designations also allow the school to provide certain programming and opportunities such as a longer class day and enrichment programs. In order to maintain these certifications and licensure, students at GCNS must adhere to the immunization requirements set forth by the CDC and New York State.
