Preschool (3 to 4 years)

Preschool is the first experience many children have in a structured setting where they have an opportunity to learn, share, follow instructions and practice good decision making.

Preschool classrooms have a maximum of 14 children in the room, with a teacher to student ratio of 1:7.


JLU provides a full-day preschool program that promotes active play, exploration, independence, and self-esteem. The curriculum focuses on language, math, science, religion, and social skills. Children have quiet time daily and may sleep or rest quietly on individual mats.  Students do not have to be fully potty trained but will be encouraged to complete potty training while in this program.


Parents are responsible for providing the following items for preschool children in care: pull-ups, wipes, extra set of clothing, fitted crib sheet & blanket.
