How to Enroll

We are currently accepting applications for the upcoming 2024–2025 school year! Applications are due March 15, 2024.

If you are interested in enrolling, or would simply like to learn more, please contact We are happy to answer any questions.

Prospective applicants may also schedule a visit to the school with your child to learn more about our philosophy, curriculum, and family responsibilities. You will be able to observe your child in the school environment, receive a first-hand account of the school from a current family member, and meet one-on-one with our Director, Johana Barahona.

Monthly Tuition

Tuition is due by the first of each month and is based upon the number of days per week (4- and 5-day options are available) and the PM programs that the child attends. Families may apply for tuition assistance.

Please contact our membership coordinator for additional information on tuition.


Children must be between 2 years 9 months – 5 years old to attend Noe Valley Nursery School, although children 2 years 6 months may be admitted at the director’s discretion. Children must be potty trained upon enrollment (accidents may happen, of course, but children cannot wear diapers; they learn quickly when among peers). Please note that we have a rolling admissions process — and we process applications in the order of receipt.

Noe Valley Nursery School welcomes all children and their families regardless of their race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, national, or ethnic origin. We do not discriminate in our program and admission policies, scholarships, or other activities.
