Preschool registration

The Gahanna-Jefferson Public School district 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. Enrollment of peer models is open to children of district residents and staff members of GJPS through an application process. Peers must also be 4 years old by Dec. 1.  

For more information or to confirm that your child is eligible to enroll, please contact Sophie Christoff, (614) 479-1315.

'Child Find Campaign'

The GJPS Child Find campaign seeks to identify, locate and evaluate all children with disabilities – from age 3 through 21 – residing within the district’s attendance boundaries. The campaign also seeks out those who may be homeless, wards of the state, or attending nonpublic schools. If you know of a child with a disability, or have a child suspected of having a disability, who is not currently receiving appropriate educational or related services, please contact the GJPS Office of Special Education at 614-337-3777.
