Waiting List Application

Thank you for your interest in enrolling your child in the early care and education program at York Day Nursery, Inc. Please provide the Nursery with the information below in order to add your child to the Waiting List. It is the family’s responsibility to notify the Nursery of any changes in your contact information.

We make every effort to notify a family when a space becomes available. If the contact information and/or phone numbers have been changed and we are unable to reach you when an opening occurs your name will automatically be removed from the waiting list. If several attempts were made and/or messages left and we do not receive your prompt response, we will assume that you are no longer interested in the space and will remove your name from the waiting list.

Families are welcome to call about the waiting list at any time. The waiting list is continually changing and for that reason it is very difficult to predict when an opening will occur. As soon as we become aware of an opening we begin the process of calling families off the waiting list matching the appropriate age of the child with the age group where the opening occurs.

If you would like to arrange for a tour of the Nursery before deciding if you want to go on the waiting list please contact the Nursery at 854-1300.

YDN is committed to providing a high quality safe, secure, and nurturing environment that is vital for the healthy development of every young child. The needs and interests of each child are the basis for classroom learning experiences, whether a child is six weeks old or four years of age.

YDN strongly believes that each child is unique and possesses unlimited potential. Thus we strive to create wonderful learning environments that encourage children “to be all they can be.” Through play in multi-cultural classrooms with well-trained educators, children explore their world at their own pace, discover how to cooperate and problem solve, try out new ideas, develop language, math and motor skills, build confidence to attempt new and different activities. This stimulating environment is designed to develop the total child—emotionally, socially, physically, and intellectually.

YDN is also committed to building a strong family and center partnership in order to provide the highest quality of care and early education for all our young children. Families are encouraged to become involved at the YDN on many different levels.
