Registration is on a first come first served basis with JCA members receiving priority until the end of April. Financial assistance packets are due by March 15th. Non-members must apply as soon as possible to obtain the best possible chance for acceptance after the member only waiting period. All applicants must be in good financial standing (no outstanding balances) with the Early Childhood Department and the JCA or your child will need to be placed on a waiting list. Once your balance is paid in full, or you have made other acceptable arrangements with our finance office, your child’s application will be processed if space is still available.

We offer flexible scheduling options including an assortment of pick-up and drop-off times and days of the week you would like your child to attend for the school year. Students can come to school as early as 7:30 am and stay as late as 6:00 pm.

Our preschool offers 2 types of programs that you are able to enroll your child in: our 9 month program and 12 month PreschoolPlus program. The 9 month program begins on the first day of the school year and ends during May, it is similar to the length of an average school year. The 12 month PreschoolPlus program includes the same days that the 9 month students are able to attend, but also allows them to attend school on certain days that the 9 month program is closed. The 12 month PreschoolPlus program also automatically enrolls them for all sessions of our summer camp program.

To secure your space, request a registration packet, or obtain further information regarding our preschool program, please contact our office at ganyeladim@jcajax.org or call (904) 730-2100 ext. 235.
