How to Apply
Thank you for your interest in our school Lincoln Park Cooperative Nursery School offers part-day, part-week programming for children between the ages 2 to 5 years old. Each program is designed to reflect the developmental needs of young children. Prospective families are encouraged to tour the school to learn more about our programs, meet the school director, and speak to a parent of a current student. School tours are required for all families new to school.

New families will be notified of acceptance or wait-list status in early March. Contracts are due the second week in March.
