  • Please note the $50 registration fee is non-refundable. (* full refunds will be issued, if a class does not meet minimums and is unable to run.)
  • Classroom Family Parent(s)/Guardian(s) need to obtain a Vulnerable Sector Check, First Aid & CPR Level C, and Anaphylaxis Online Training
  • Elmira Community Nursery School is a cooperative not-for-profit organization that relies on the support of families to participate and share in the responsibilities to run our school.
    • Your family has the option to participate in the classroom or outside of the classroom. While we would love to have all parents involved directly in the classroom, we recognize this is not always possible. Not to worry as there are many other ways for you to support our school. Some of the ways are joining the Board of Directors, fundraising, sponsorship, or providing support based on other expertise. 
    • All families are asked to participate in Committees to help facilitate fundraising and plan events for the children. 
    • Your decision to become involved with such a program will require time and dedication. Please make sure that you understand your role as a cooperative nursery school parent. If in doubt, please ask.
  • Please feel free to read more about our program in our Registration Package & from our website where we have a Parent Handbook under ‘Login’ (password: 2609) Please note that the updated Fall 2021 files are not there yet!
