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. This year we are offering two different ways to apply.
Early Decision: NEW THIS YEAR!
Early decision is for a family who consider LPCNS their top choice for preschool. Applying early decision gives your family the opportunity to secure your spot before the lottery. The application is due in advance of our regular admission application. After you are notified of your enrollment, you will have 72 hours to submit your deposit.
Regular admission is for a family who is considering a variety of preschool options. Your application will be enrolled on a lottery basis when there are more applicants than positions available. Student names are drawn one by one to fill the class. We balance each class by gender, so a separate lottery is held and one waitlist kept for boys and for girls. Wait-lists remain active throughout the school year.
