Applying to Preschool, Junior Kindergarten, or Kindergarten
Children as young as age three are warmly welcomed onto a campus dedicated to each child’s social, emotional, and academic growth. The community ethos is one of caring, cooperation, and discovery. Even the youngest students enjoy the benefits of a remarkable library, art and music studios, nature trails, a natural pond, and fully equipped gyms. Enriched by the arts, music and movement, library, literacy, and physical education programs, the thoughtful curriculum also introduces Spanish as the World Language — as early as Preschool.

Tuitions for Preschool or Junior Kindergarten, as well as fees for our child care options may be paid with untaxed dollars from Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts. Please consult your employer's benefits administrator.
Financial Aid is available beginning in Kindergarten.
If you are applying for financial aid, we recommend creating an account on sssbynais.org and completing the Parent Financial Statement on that website as early in the process as possible. While financial aid may be available throughout the year, the majority of awards are granted by March 1. For first-round financial aid consideration, please apply for an award by February 15.
Acceptance decisions are made on a need-blind basis. Awards arrange from 10% to 70% of tuition. By helping academically qualified students to attend, taking into consideration their families’ resources, financial aid strengthens the economic and social diversity of the school, a key component to Renbrook's mission. Approximately 32% of our students receive some level of financial aid grant.
