Thank you for your interest in Temple Shaaray Tefila Nursery School. Our online application for children turning two by December 31, 2019 will be available beginning on September 4 through November 10, 2018. Once we have received your submission and payment of a $75 application fee, we will contact you via email to schedule a tour of the school, which will take place in October, November, or December. If you have any questions about the process,  please call 212-535-2146 or e-mail Ethel Alhale at [email protected]

Admissions Process:
Priority is given to: 1.Siblings of children currently enrolled in the Nursery School, 2.Temple members (within this group, priority is given according to the length of your membership), and 3.Siblings of children previously enrolled in our school. Acceptance letters will be mailed to all families on February 28, 2019.

Every year, most of our spaces are filled with members and siblings. While we can never predict in advance how many spaces we can offer non-members, each year we do offer spots to non-members through a random selection. We would like to accommodate everyone, and we will do our best to do so.
