Thank you for your interest in The Medical Center Nursery School. While priority for admission into the school's programs is given to children whose parents are affiliated with Columbia University Medical Center or who are siblings, non affiliated community families are a significant part of the MCNS family and are encouraged to apply. The Application Fee is $ 60.00. You may pay by check, made out to MCNS. sent via surface mail or you may pay the fee by using the Pay Pal link below to pay the application fee. Please note that submission of an application does not guarantee acceptance into the programs or session of choice. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the school office, 212.304.7040.

The school accepts applications for children ages 2 years through 4 years at the time of enrollment. We recommend that applications (for programs beginning in September of the following year) be submitted during the first week of September (but not before September 1st). The school still is accepting applications for all sessions and classes for the 2016-2017 academic year. School visits for individual applicant families for next year have begun but will continue through late February 2018.

There is a more detailed procedure letter at the beginning of the brochure below. Current tuition schedules link. Additionally, the application form and financial aid form can be completed electronically and sent to as a pdf via email as an attachment. Note to MAC users, you should save a copy of the completed form and submit the saved pdf to avoid submitting a blank application form. Please do not scan the admission form and submit the scanned pdf via email.
