Enrollment Process

Garden Nursery School is an urban school community in Cambridge, where the different perspectives, experiences, and dignity of each child, teacher, and family are respected. We welcome all applicants who are the appropriate age and whose families accept the responsibilities of a cooperative preschool.

Garden Nursery School does not evaluate applicants because we understand that children grow and develop at their own pace and we believe that all children deserve a warm, nurturing preschool experience. We are committed to maintaining a diverse student body.

Garden Nursery School does not discriminate in its employment, educational opportunities, programs, activities, or facilities on the basis of race, color, age, disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious beliefs, national origin, ancestry, or genetics.
