2020-2021 School Year
Epiphany Lutheran Nursery School is currently registering students for the 2020-2021 school year. Families are welcome to schedule a time to visit ELNS on school days between 9:15 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. During your appointment you will have time with the Director to be sure your questions are answered as well as a time to tour our facilities and see our students and teachers engaged in their daily activities. If you decide to enroll your child at ELNS, the first step is to complete the application linked above. You may choose to pay the application fee and new student fee (for first time students only) when you submit the application, or you may pay these fees when you receive an invoice via email. Please call or email the ELNS Director to schedule an appointment or if you have any questions regarding the application process.
Tuition Rates 2020-2021
Tuition is paid on a monthly basis August – May after making an initial deposit of $200 that is due with your contract. The deposit is counted towards your tuition for the year. An example of a monthly tuition amount follows. 3 day tuition of $2425 – $200 deposit = $2225 remaining. That is divided by 10 (August – May) to get $222.50 a month for the 3 day tuition for the 3 years & up group. There is a $35 application fee assessed each year for every student (church members and school staff are exempt) and $50 new student processing fee that is only assessed for students that have never been enrolled at ELNS. All amounts below are for the entire school year. *Tuition assistance is available to qualifying families. Please contact the director for more information if you feel you may need assistance.
Application Dates 2020-2021
Priority registration for our current ELNS families and Epiphany Lutheran Church members begins on December 16, 2019. Placement is guaranteed if the application is completed prior to January 10, 2020. All other applications will be considered beginning on January 10, 2020. At the close of priority registration, all additional applications will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis as long as there are spaces available. A wait list will be created for each class once all spaces are filled in that room.
After reviewing your application, if an appropriate space is available, ELNS will issue a contract for your signature that verifies your child’s enrollment. You will have until May 1, 2020 to void your contract for any reason. If an appropriate space is not available, you will be notified by email that your child has been placed on our wait list. A confirmation letter with your child’s class assignments, along with a tuition payment schedule and a school calendar will be mailed to the famiily of each accepted student in August.
Please note that the day preferenes you select on the application are only preferences. Spaces are filled on a first-come, first-served basis and days will be confirmed with you prior to issuing a contract for signature.
If you have more than 1 student that will be attending ELNS during the 2020-2021 school year, we do provide a discount on tuition for 1 sibling. There is a 10% discount for the 2nd child (lesser tuition amount is the one discounted).
Forms Needed for School
You will receive all necessary forms for school in your confirmation packet, which is mailed in early August. We are required by law to document viewing a certified copy of your child’s birth certificate prior to their attendance at nursery school. You must also provide a copy of your child’s current immunizations (has to have been updated between September 2019 and August 2020). You should bring both of these in prior to your child’s first day of school. Additional paperwork such as pickup authorization forms, emergency medical release forms, etc. will be included in the packet.
