we are proud to offer financial assistance to families who qualify. 

The Saul and Carole Zabar Nursery School at the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan is deeply committed to providing an affordable early childhood experience for children who might otherwise not be able to attend.

Assistance is awarded solely on the basis of economic need without regard to race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion, age, sex, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, veteran status, disability, or any other proscribed category set forth in federal or state regulations. All financial aid information is entirely confidential.

Applications are submitted via an online system called SSS by NAIS. This system provides a framework for families to be assessed in a consistent manner, based on the information provided. It requires supporting documentation including household members’ most recent tax forms and W-2s, along with a personal application. Please note that an updated application is necessary for each year of enrollment.

If you have questions regarding the financial assistance process or wish to receive a financial aid application, please contact
