Welcome to a new school year at UCNS! We want to welcome all our new families and welcome back returning families. We are looking forward to a great school year! The teachers have been busy over the summer getting their classrooms ready and coming up with new, exciting activities for our classes.

All our 2’s classes are full. We currently have very limited availability in our 3’s class and a few spots open in our 4’s class. Our Monday Multi-Age Cooking class also has space. If interested in any of these classes please contact the school at 301-422-1404.

Any further questions, please call UCNS at 301-422-1404.

In the 2018-19 school year UCNS began offering a multi-age class on Monday and Tuesday each week.

What does this mean exactly?

On Monday and Tuesday, there is an option for a combined class of 2, 3, and 4 year olds.  If you are interested in enrolling your students at UCNS for 5 days a week, you could sign up for Monday and/or Tuesday to supplement the other available classes for your child’s age group.  For example, if you want your four-year old to attend five days a week, you would have the ability to enroll your child in the 4’s class, and also enroll him in the Monday Multi-Age class.   Additionally, if you only want your child enrolled two days, or if you want your child to experience classroom interaction with children of other ages, which can have tremendous benefits, this would be the ideal setting.

Check out our Enrollment page for more information on this exciting new addition to our program!
