School Year

School is in session from September through early June. We follow the Mascoma Valley Regional School District vacation calendar.

"I checked out 6 preschools before enrolling my child here and I've been impressed with the quality teachers, the bright, cheery appearance of the classroom, and all that my child learns there. Fantastic playground too. It's a diamond in the rough."

IRNS is pleased to offer a two sibling discount with 15% off of the second sibling. This discount may not be used in conjunction with tuition assistance (it is one or the other), or any other discount offered. If there is a family situation with more than two siblings in the school, we will direct that family to apply for tuition assistance. No additional discount would be offered to a third sibling.
