Welcome to the Gahanna-Jefferson Preschool program!  We look forward to meeting you and your child and assisting you in preparing for a fun, challenging and educational year. 

Enrollment/registration for preschool students is available March 13.


GJPS offers an outstanding preschool program that serves children with disabilities and also provides an educational opportunity for typical developing children to serve as social and academic peer models. Peers must also be 4 years old by Dec. 1. Enrollment is open to children of district residents and staff members of GJPS through an application process. Tuition is reasonably priced at $130/month; the school year is nine months long.
