Nursery School

MSDE OCC Certificate of Approval #3710


SPUMCNS, an MSDE-approved preschool, offers half-day and extended sessions for students ages three and four. Our curriculum, approved by the Maryland State Department of Education, promotes personal, physical, cognitive, and social development through wide and varied experiences in literature, math, science, social studies, art, music, and faith.  The school year runs from September through May, and classes are capped at 14 students, with two teachers per class.  We do not have a before- or after-school care program. Our experienced, highly trained staff members all share a passion for working with preschoolers.

To attend, your child must be fully immunized, independently using the bathroom, and must have turned three or four by September 1 of the school year for which they’re enrolling.

We are now accepting applications for our 2023-24 school year. You may apply by clicking the appropriate link, below. Please call us to arrange a tour or to answer any questions you have prior to submitting your application.

We will contact you via phone to collect the registration fee ($100.00) and tuition deposit, which will confirm your child’s placement. The tuition deposit will be applied to the final month of the school year (May, 2024).

We will require either a debit card number or bank routing/account number for automatic billing.

The tuition deposit is refundable if you notify us in writing by May 1st, 2023 that you are withdrawing your student. After that date, the tuition deposit is nonrefundable.
