Institute for Advanced Study Community:

First preference for admission will be given to children of Members, Faculty, Staff and Visitors of the Institute for Advanced Study. Second preference will be given to children who have been in Crossroads the previous year. Third preference will be given to siblings of currently enrolled community children. Any additional openings will go to new families on our waitlist.

The priority enrollment period for the IAS community extends through March 15.

Due to budgetary considerations we may not be able to hold open places for Institute children who become eligible after the start of the school year. Similarly we will try to accommodate, but cannot guarantee placement for Institute members who will be in residence for one term only. 

 Families without IAS affiliation:

 For new families interested in joining Crossroads, we will begin accepting names on our waitlist for the 2023-24 academic year on October 1, 2022.

Please send an email to with your child’s name, date of birth, parent contact information and your desired schedule – see below for details;

All our programs are five days a week, Monday through Friday.

The programs for Infants and Toddlers are always a full-day program (8:30-5:15).

The preschool program has three schedule options in 2022-23:

Full-day: 8:30-5:15

Extended-day: 9:00-3:30

Half-day: 8:45-12:45

Please make sure to specify your preferences in your email inquiry.

We will have information on space availability for new families without IAS-affiliation beginning in mid-March.
