We are now accepting applications for the 2020-21 school year

We anticipate few openings in all three classrooms for next year.  Applications received after December 1 may be placed on a waitlist.    Children applying to UPNS must be 2 years old by September 15, 2021, to be eligible to attend our Blue Room, which is the classroom for our youngest children. Our program is 5 days a week from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM for all children. Some families choose to pick children up before rest time, but we do not offer a part time schedule.  Please contact Layla or Loyan at info@universityplazanursery.org with any questions. 


The school gives priority to currently enrolled students, siblings of current students and of students enrolled within the last five years, and children of full-time faculty, staff and students of NYU. Parent tours will be virtual this year and will be held in November and December. Beginning in late October we will contact families who have applied to schedule their parent tour. In January and February, applicants may come to the school for a play visit in a small group. We send acceptance notification by email based on the admissions timeline set by the Independent School Admission Association of Greater New York. (ISAAGNY).  Most nursery schools use ISAAGNY guidelines so families receive acceptance notifications for schools they have applied to on the same day and they can make the best decision for their family without pressure.

Please submit your application and $25 application fee here.
