Thank you so much for your interest in joining the Goldman Family Preschool!
We anticipate having a few spots for the 2020/2021 school year. Please fill out our waitlist form to be added to our waitlist.
We run on an academic calendar, so our waitlist and registration process reflects this. Registration begins in January for the upcoming school year. We begin with priority registration for currently enrolled families and then their siblings, followed by alumni. Once our in-house registration period closes, we notify those on our waitlist about existing available spaces. Should a space become available during the school year, we notify waitlist families of those openings. Adding your name to our dated waitlist will give you priority registration, and will keep you updated on registration throughout the year.
If a space does become available and you’re interested at that time, we will set up a time for you to tour the school as soon as possible. We also have an Open House for interested families in November or December before registration opens in January.
In addition to our school year, the Goldman Family Preschools runs a summer vacation camp for one- to four-year-olds and we are happy to welcome many children who go to other schools during the year. You can find out more information about that here.
The Jewish Community Alliance has lots to offer, including a bi-monthly Play with PJ! Play date, which involves 0- to 3-year-olds and their caregivers participating in free play, stories, and songs. We also have a partnership with PJ Library, which provides free, age-appropriate, Jewish themed books and music each month to children ages 6 months through 12-years-old. We also offer a variety of fitness programs, clubs and gatherings, and an Arts and Culture series.
We encourage you to visit our website often, like our Facebook page, and join our mailing list to get involved and stay up to date on what’s happening at the J and around our community.
If you have ideas about new initiatives or programs you would like to see, we welcome your feedback and suggestions! Please don’t hesitate to be in touch with our Program Coordinator, Hannah, who can be reached at programs[at]mainejewish.org.
