We can’t wait to welcome you and your little one to our family of preschools. We’ll support you every step of the way – from applying and touring, throughout your days with us, and into the big transition to kindergarten. Let’s get started!

Submit an Application

Applications for the 2024 – 2025 school year open on Wednesday, September 6 at 9:00 am.

When you select the “Apply” button, you will be prompted to either log into your existing JCCSF account or create a new one. Once you’re logged into your account, select “Personal Information” from the settings, and under “My Household” create a new contact for your child. Then when you continue onto the application, select your child’s profile to complete the process.

Take a Tour

Tours are scheduled from October 2, 2023, through January 30, 2024. Once you submit your application, you will be invited to register for a tour. For the 2024 – 2025 school year, tours for Diller and Brotherhood Way preschools have been extended through February 29.

Fill Out a Questionnaire

After completing a preschool tour, you will receive a Post-Tour Questionnaire that needs to be returned to complete the application process.

Decision Time

Admission letters are sent in mid-March for fall enrollment.


After accepting your spot, you’ll receive an enrollment agreement and a non-refundable $600 deposit is due. We maintain an active wait pool and fill additional spaces as they become available throughout the year. Families who have applied, but not toured, will still be considered for mid-year vacancies.

Financial Assistance

Once you’ve accepted your spot at one of our preschools, you can submit your application to receive adjusted tuition for the upcoming school year.


  • To be considered for enrollment in the 2024 – 2025 school year, your child must be 2 years old by August 19, 2024.
  • You must complete all three steps of the application process.
  • Only one application is required for admission to all three preschools.

We are committed to creating an inclusive community that’s infused with meaningful Jewish values. We celebrate holidays with our children and families throughout the year, as well as weekly Shabbat with fresh challah bread and juice. The JCCSF’s core values are drawn from our engagement with wisdom culled from millennia of Jewish traditions, which teach compassion and respect, lifelong learning, civic responsibility and social justice.


Our teachers listen to and observe children closely to plan and proceed with each day’s experiences, co-constructing the learning experience and exploring together.

  • Average teacher-child ratio of 1:5
  • 80 teachers on site across our three schools
  • Each teacher receives 100 hours of professional development per year


Our Parent Council is essential to the mix, building community for our families and supporting our teachers. From volunteering in the classroom as a Room Parent, to helping with Shabbats and events, you’ll share in your child’s preschool experience and make friends, too!


Our schools feature spacious classrooms and outdoor play areas, garden spaces and art studios. Each location is unique and lovingly decorated and appointed with games, toys, musical instruments and more.


All children have the right to equitable learning opportunities that help them achieve their full potential as engaged learners and valued members of society. Families of all faiths, backgrounds and abilities are welcome to apply.

This is our first year at the school and our 3-year-old son is loving it. He has flourished and developed so much since starting in August. The teachers are caring, loving and provide an engaging environment for kids . . . This school has my highest recommendation!

I can't say enough great things about this school! Between two children, we have been at the school for 6 years. Our experience gets better and better each year. The teachers and staff are so warm and nurturing. The families and community are fantastic.

The school's approach, space, and leadership team foster an environment that builds good kids. During our time there, the parent community provided wonderful support and camaraderie as well.
