Our application cycle for Fall 2019 is now closed.

The SIJCC Preschool is a community. We value those who believe in our mission, vision, and philosophy.  The first step for families interested in the SIJCC ECE Program is to join one of our Open Houses where you’ll get a chance to explore the campus.  If it feels like a fit, you will be directed to fill out the ECE Interest Form. We love it when families:

  • Participate in Friday morning Shabbat, monthly community events, programs, & holidays.
  • Participate in the Parent and Me program (which gives you a chance to learn about our school but does not guarantee admission into the ECE Program).
  • Participate and volunteer in our annual fundraising events.
  • Provide letters of support from friends and family members who have an existing relationship to the SIJCC.
  • Return with siblings and children of alumni.
Families that complete the ECE Interest Form before December 2019 will recieve an application by January 2020. Final admissions decisons will be made by February of 2020 for the 2020-2021 school year.
