Due to the pandemic, the admissions process at TSNS will begin with a virtual tour of our school, which is required for all prospective families. Tours are led by our Acting Director, who is also a former Nursery School parent and faculty member.  She will provide you with a virtual opportunity to “visit” classrooms, including our art studio/investigation room, motor room, and outdoor play spaces, as well as time to learn about our educational philosophy and have your questions answered.



To schedule a tour, please call the TSNS office at (202) 362-3836.  Please leave a detailed message and our administrative assistant will reach out to you shortly.

Admissions materials will be emailed to families participating in virtual tours.

The children of Temple Sinai members, and siblings of currently and previously enrolled TSNS children, are given priority in the admissions process until December 31.

At TSNS, our formal admission period has historically taken place annually from October through December. Generally, families who have applied for admission for their children during this period will receive an admissions decision by the third week in January, and admission applications submitted after January 1 are reviewed on a rolling basis.  Parents are notified about admissions decisions as soon as possible.

During this COVID time we are evaluating our admissions timeline as we concurrently determine what programming we will be able to safely offer in the coming year.

Had we been able to open on-site with regular in-person programming for the 2020-2021 school year, the below tuition schedules reflect the tuition model we would have followed:
