Applications for admission to Alice and Nahum Lainer School's Douglas Family Early Childhood Center are available in mid-September, one year prior to starting school. Applications are welcome in early January. Late applications may be accepted if space is available. A parent interview is necessary for all new applicants. Due to the limited number of available openings, we are unable to accept all applicants. Admissions decision letters are mailed.

We offer a three-day or five-day program for toddlers (ages 18-23 months of age by Sept. 1) and a five-day program for children, ages two to five years old. Children attend from 9 a.m.-noon or 9 a.m.-3 p.m. (including Kids' Club).
