St. John’s Nursery


St. John’s Nursery School offers both 3-year old and 4-year old classes. A child must have his/her birthday on or before September 1st of the academic year to which they are applying.

St. John’s Nursery School does not discriminate in its educational, admissions, or administrative policies on the basis of race, color, creed, disability, or the national/ethnic origins of its students. All are granted equal privileges and rights to the school’s programs and activities.

For families interested in learning more about our school, please join us at one of our upcoming Open Houses. All are welcome to explore the school's classrooms and playground and to meet the director of the nursery school and the teachers. Open Houses are held in the fall and again on either the first or second Saturday in January.

You may also call the school at (781) 329-2032 if you would like to schedule a tour.

We occasionally have vacancies that may be filled outside of our Open Houses and formal registration period. Please contact the school at (781) 329-2032 or email

A registration lottery is held the Tuesday following the January Open House. Former St. John’s Nursery School families, children of current and past St. John’s board members, as well as current St. John's Nursery School students have priority in the lottery drawing.

Specific dates and times are posted on this webpage and in the local newspapers. Feel free to contact our Registrar at for more information.

Open Houses

We host two Open Houses each year, in November and in early January.


We hold a Lottery Registration in early January of each year. The deadline to submit Lottery Registration Forms to St John’s Nursery School, is 7:00pm on the night of the lottery, in order to be eligible for the lottery. A closed registration lottery will be held that evening, and you will be notified by email about placement.

You may drop off your completed registration form during one of our open houses or registration sessions, or mail your registration form to us. Please consider your registration form received only once you have received a confirmation email from our registrar.

We at St. John’s Nursery School are dedicated to a strong partnership between parents and teachers and look forward to meeting you and your family. For more information, please contact our Director at (781) 329-2032 or email
