Dear Families:

Welcome to St. Columba’s Nursery School. We are so happy to have your family joining our school family for the upcoming 2016-2017 school-year. Now that you have secured your child’s placement for next year, we want to let you know he next steps to be ready for next school year.

First, we ask ALL families to please take the time to complete our Directory and Contact Information Form. Please pay close attention to spelling and format when completing this form, as this is the information we will use to complete our Parent Directory for next year.

Next, we invite all new St. Columba children to sign up for a May playdate. The link for signing up is here. These playdates give all the new children the chance to play on the playground for about an hour, while our teachers and Head of School get the chance to meet, play and chat with the children and parents. These visits give us the first glimpse into personalities that we find very helpful when setting up our class lists. When you come to your child’s May playdate, please bring a completed enrollment packet. You may also return these forms via email to prior to your playdate. These forms are required to have on file for all children.

For re-enrolling students, no new playdate is required since we already know your children so well, but we do need some new forms completed. Please take the time to complete the Re-Enrollment Packet and return it to the office, either by hand or via email to

If you email the forms, please change the name of the file to your child’s name.

If any family needs a hard-copy of the enrollment forms, please call the office at (202) 742-1980 and we will provide them.
