Registration Packet

Upon receipt of your completed enrollment forms, first month’s tuition, and registration fee, your child will be added to the enrollment list for the 2019 – 2020 school year. You will receive confirmation from the CCNS Membership Coordinator confirming your child’s enrollment.

Remaining tuition payments begin on September 15, 2019 and are due the 15th of each month thereafter. Tuition is paid one month in advance. (Please see the tuition payment schedule for more information.) If first month’s tuition is not received upon registration, your child may be removed from our enrollment list.

The first Member (Parent) Meeting for the 2019 – 2020 school year will be announced in the spring . At that meeting you will receive the CCNS handbook and calendars. Please be sure to include in your enrollment papers an e-mail address which you check often, as much of our communication is via e-mail.

State of CT requirements regarding forms:

The state requires that each line item on all forms (including the questionnaire) is filled out. Therefore, rather than leaving a line blank, please write “N/A (Not Applicable)” or “Same” as appropriate.

A student’s health form must list a physical exam date that is within twelve months of the school start date. Updated health forms must be submitted when the physical exam date expires, usually on or near your child’s birthday. 

For example: Justin’s health form lists a physical exam date of March 19, 2018 (near his fourth birthday.) This exam will be valid at the start of school in September 2018, but will expire on March 19, 2019. At this time, a new health form which shows an updated physical exam must be submitted for Justin to stay enrolled at school.
