Admissions

We encourage all interested families to attend one of our Open Houses. Please see our calendar of events for specific dates and times. Visiting families have the opportunity to meet our teachers, tour our wonderful facility, as well as speak with current families.

A tour of our school is a vital part of getting to know us. During a tour, families not only have an opportunity to see our facilities, but they will also have opportunities to ask questions of and address any areas of concern with our Membership co-chairs. Our Membership committee is made up of existing SNS families familiar with the policies, procedures, and routines at SNS. Unless you are a returning family, we strongly recommend you schedule a tour as part of your application process. To schedule a visit outside one of our Open House dates, please send an email to Admissions.

Families who wish to apply for enrollment at SNS, should complete the online application and return the application fee and a signed copy of the SNS Co-op Agreement to the school (see above links for forms) at:

Suburban Nursery School Membership
7210 Hidden Creek Rd.
Bethesda, MD 20817

Please note that we follow Maryland State Department of Education guidelines for age at enrollment. Children must be two years old by September first of the school year they enroll in our Yellowbird classes. Children enrolling in the Bluebird or Redbird classes must be 3 or 4, respectively, by September 1.

At Suburban Nursery School, we offer priority registration for our returning families, siblings and alumni. Priority applications are due before the date of the Fall Open House. For new families, we begin accepting applications the day of the Fall Open House. Families are given priority for enrollment and co-op options according to the date they submit all parts of the application. To process an application for enrollment, SNS must have received completed application and co-oping agreement forms, and the application fee.
