Tuition & Tuition Assistance

NSNS strives to keep tuition within reach for young families while maintaining our commitment to excellent early childhood education.

Happy Child outside at North Shore Nursery School

North Shore Nursery School delivers the highest quality preschool experience for children and their families through our low student-teacher ratio, small classroom sizes, highly-qualified faculty, remarkable indoor and outdoor facilities, and diverse enrichment programming. For information on tuition, please contact Susannah DiPasquale, Director of Enrollment, at

Tuition Assistance

NSNS partners with Student and School Services (SSS) for our tuition assistance process. Families interested in tuition assistance should indicate this on their enrollment application. Interested families should then set up an account on School and Student Services (SSS) and complete the online Parents Financial Statement (PFS). Required documents include your family’s most recent tax return.


After completing the application, SSS will provide an objective assessment of a family’s eligibility for assistance to NSNS and NSNS’ Tuition Assistance Committee will meet to make tuition assistance decisions. Families will be notified about their tuition assistance status on a rolling basis.
