Dear Families interested in the JCA Preschool,


I am excited to share that we will begin registration for the public for the 2017/2018 school year on February 1st and February 15th. The school year program will be held in our BRAND NEW school at 1342 Congress Street in Portland!


We will have five classrooms in our new facility and will accept children ages 6 weeks through age 5. We maintain a schedule that is as flexible as possible, and do our best to accommodate the needs of as many families as possible.


There is great interest in our new facility and additional classrooms and I have given many tours. I anticipate that many of our classrooms will fill up quickly and unfortunately we are unlikely to able to accommodate all who want to attend; we encourage people to sign up as soon as possible when registration opens, and we will be in touch within 2 weeks to confirm enrollment.


The JCA Preschool welcomes children of all backgrounds. Priority for admissions is as follows:


            Children currently enrolled

            Siblings of children currently enrolled and alumni

            JCA staff children

            Relatives of JCA Board members (past and present)

            Children of families who are members of affiliated Jewish institutions


Priority registration begins February 1st at 8:00 am.

Open registration begins February 15th at 8:00am.

Please note that to enroll in the JCA Preschool, children must be up to date on vaccinations as specified by the CDC, unless medically unable to be vaccinated on schedule.


In all cases, desired schedules depend on availability.


Again, registration begins February 1st and February 15th  at 8:00 am.  


We are so excited for the new facility and hope your family can join us in the new school year! Please let me know if you have any questions.
