His Nursery University …And You Thought Getting Into Penn Was Hard

As I reported HERE the other week via exclusive videos, despite having good grades and extra curricular activities, there is still much anxiety associated with a prospect waiting to find out if he or she will get into Penn.

If you think this is bad, imagine what some parents need to do to get their child into …nursery school!

Documentary filmmaker Marc Simon (C’96, SAM) has created a movie that many parents…especially in the NY and California regions will relate to.  The film covers the (absurd!) process of getting their child into nursery school and what nursery school admissions is all about.

Per Marc (kneeling in picture below),

Nursery University“From the moment parents learn they are “having a baby”, they focus on providing a happy and healthy environment and the best opportunities for their kids. This includes planning for their children’s education, and today, for moms and dads across this country, the pressures associated with schooling begin early – very early. Nursery University gets inside nursery school admissions — a modern day cultural right of passage — with sensitivity and a great sense of humor, inviting the audience behind the scenes to experience and learn from this stranger-than-fiction reality.”
