Waiting List

All our programs have a waiting list. As vacancies occur, they will be filled in order down the waiting list. Your child’s position on the waiting list is dependent upon two factors: (1) when you applied, and (2) the date your child is ready to start. Your child’s position on the waiting list may move up or down based on these factors. To place your child’s name on the waiting list, please fill out the UPNS Application Form and submit the $50 non-refundable application fee. If you have questions about your position on the waiting list, please contact the UPNS office at (310) 397-2735.

Potty Training

All rooms are equipped to handle children who are potty trained.

The Kitten Room (for 18 months – 2 year olds) is the only room that can accommodate children who are still in diapers.  Potty training is NOT required to enroll in the Kitten Room. If your child is not yet potty trained, the teachers in the Kitten Room will work with you to potty train your child when your child is ready.  Potty training IS required for all other classrooms. The Kangaroo and Dolphin rooms are not equipped to change diapers.

Older children who wish to enroll in UPNS, but are not yet potty trained, will be offered a spot in the Kitten Room.  Once they are potty trained, they can move into the appropriate class for their age, pending space available.
