Age Eligibility

We accept incoming children in their first year of preschool (3–4 year olds) for our ‘Yellow Bird’ class who are the age of three as of September 1.  If there are openings for our second year (4–5 year olds) ‘Red Bird’ class, children must be four years old by September 1.

 

Criteria

Portuguese Bend Nursery School is a three day a week, Tuesday–Thursday, 8:45–11:45 a.m. preschool. The school year begins in September continuing through June. No after school programs are offered by PBNS.  We subscribe to a ‘green’ philosophy, including required carpooling, conservation, and recycling.  Healthy, daily snacks are provided to our children at PBNS.

 

Fees

Our monthly dues are $175 September through June.  Additionally, each family is asked to meet an annual fundraising goal of approximately $420, which can be easily met through guided fundraising activities throughout the school year.

 

How To Enroll

Portuguese Bend Nursery School takes inquiries for new enrollment all year round. Those interested in the school should submit their name and email address via this website. Once you have contacted us, you will be sent an email reminder in December about our Annual Open Enrollment Day.
 
Parents who would like to enroll a sibling of an alumnus should fill out the Online Enrollment Request Form. Parents of currently enrolled Yellow Birds do not need to fill out the online form if their child/children will be returning as Red Birds.
