Thank you for your interest in Nomura Preschool, located on the El Cerrito – Albany border in the Richmond Annex, CA. Our preschool offers a balanced program that fosters development of the intellect, artistic capacity, physical fitness, and character of children from two to five years old. We are pleased that you have decided to apply for admission to our preschool. Our admission procedure is described below.
Please call the Preschool Office at (510) 526-7847 to schedule a tour of the preschool with our Director, Ms. Lucy Karanja, if you have not already done so. During the tour, you will visit our preschool campus, and the class your child will enter, depending on your child’s age. You will also have the opportunity to meet our staff, and learn more about our program.
Please return the Application for Admission with the $100 application fee to the Preschool Office (see Richmond address below). The application fee is nonrefundable.
After your tour, we will review your Application for Admission. Most applicants receive notification of acceptance within one week of applying. Depending on age and availability, your child may be placed on the waiting list. Your child’s acceptance letter will inform you of her/his class and start date, and tuition payment instructions.
