Thank you for your interest in the Edlavitch DCJCC Preschool!
Spots Open in the Current School Year:
At the moment, we still have room in the 2023-2024 school year for children born September 2019-October 2020.
Please fill out the Admission Pool List application and also email Miriam at firstname.lastname@example.org to express interest in the 2023-2024 school year, which runs August 30, 2023, to August 16, 2024.
We’d love to show you our school! The weekday Preschool Group Tours include the chance to see our facilities, hear about our program and observe classes of children and teachers learning through play. All group tours start at 9:15 AM.
Please contact Miriam Szubin, Director of Preschool Admissions, at email@example.com if you live outside the DC area and would like to set up a live virtual tour, or if you have special circumstances that prevent you from joining us on one of the scheduled dates.
You can register for the Admission Pool List at any point after your baby is born, and the earlier the better (but no need to do it before the baby arrives!). There is only one Admission Pool List, regardless of when your child will start school. Once you register, we will sort your child into sub-pools based on their date of birth.
In order to be considered for admission, children must be registered on our Admission Pool List. There is no other application process; your Admission Pool List registration serves as your application. There is a one-time $50 Admission Pool List application fee, which will then keep your child on the list for all future school years until s/he is 5 years old (or you ask us to remove you). Once you are registered on the Admission Pool List, there is no need for further action until admission offers go out. See more information about the Admissions Process and Timeline below.
We run on a school year system from September through August, so children are admitted for the school year that starts the September following them turning 18 months or two years old. In order to be considered for admission, children must be registered on our Admission Pool List (see below). There is no other application process; your Admission Pool List registration serves as your application.
When we begin the admissions process for the new school year in early February of each year, we send out offers to new 18-month and new 2-year old families based on a number of factors, including, but not limited to, whether an older sibling has been an EDCJCC student, date of Admission Pool List sign-up, past participation in EDCJCC programs, and other considerations necessary to create balanced classrooms. In mid-March, once we have completed re-enrollment of current families, we will begin offering spots to new 3- and 4-year old families using the same considerations.
