Enrollment Process

Thank you for your interest in Nisse Preschool! We encourage parents to schedule a time to bring your child for a visit, tour our facility, and meet our director, teachers and staff.  To enroll your child at Nisse Preschool, you will need to submit your registration form and payment.  We accept students on a first-come, first-serve basis, once registration opens in January.  Current Nisse families will have an opportunity to register in December before registration opens to the public in January.  Once registration is open, we continue with open enrollment (and maintain a waiting list if a class is filled) throughout the school year.



We begin accepting registration for the upcoming school year in early January. For the 2021-2022 school year, registration will open January 4th, 2021. You can complete and print our registration here Registration Form. Forms must be turned in to Nisse Preschool (311 College Drive) and will be numbered according to the order in which they are received. Forms may be turned in as early as 7:30 am on Monday, January 4.  Payment must accompany the form in order to be placed on the list.  When a program fills (20 students in the four-year-old class; 18 students in the three-year-old class) we will continue to accept registrations toward our waiting list.  You do not need to submit the $75 registration fee if your child is placed on the waiting list.  If a spot opens up for your child you can take up to a week to submit the registration fee.





Fees & Availability


There is a $75 non-refundable registration fee that must be submitted with the form.  This administration fee covers the fall and spring semester milk fees. If your child is placed on the waiting list, no payment is required. We will contact you if an opening becomes available, and then you will have one week to submit your payment.



Tuition for the 4-year-old program is $330/month.  Again for the 2021-2022 school year, this is fully-funded by the Statewide Voluntary Preschool Program (SWVPP) grant.  Families attending this program pay $0 for tuition.


Tuition for the 3-year-old class is $125/month. Please note: First and last month’s tuition are due prior to the first day of class.


Tuition Assistance

Tuition Assistance is available.  Forms will be made available to you in the enrollment packet; if you would like to receive one earlier contact the director.  Tuition assistance is based upon national published poverty thresholds, which are subject to change each year.


State regulations require that your child have a physical form signed by your healthcare provider and a completed immunization card. These must be on file prior to the first day of class.
