Application Process


Visit Colonial Nursery School


Email [email protected] or call (410) 266-8064 to schedule a tour or attend an open house. Tours are approximately 30 minutes and are accommodated most school days Monday through Friday, 9:30am-11:30am.

Submit Application

Current members receive priority enrollment. Applications are submitted on a tiered schedule according to each family’s membership status.


Submit Deposit

In order to secure a spot at CNS, a non-refundable deposit of one month’s tuition is due at the time of enrollment. New and Alumni Members submit a deposit with application and application fee. Current Members submit application when enrollment begins and may wait to submit their deposit up until May 1. If a deposit is not received from a Current Member by May 1, the spot is forfeited.

Waitlisted families submit a deposit once a spot is available in the class.

Tuition assistance is available. Email [email protected] for more information.



Submit Health and Safety Forms

Health and Safety Forms are due August 1 for all members, including a Criminal Background Check ($60 paid by the co-oping adult). Refer to the Forms Checklist to ensure you are submitting the correct forms for your family. In order for your child to attend school, all forms must be submitted on time.
