Jamul Preschool Parent/Student Handbook & Application:

The Jamul Preschool is a developmental preschool program for children ages two through five. We adhere to the guidelines and standards given to us by the California Department of Education, Child Development Division.

Did you know that research on the development of the brain indicates that by the time children reach age three, their brains are twice as active as those of adults? Equally important are the ages of three through five, when children continue to acquire and practice new skills.

Our curriculum provides discovery through activities that foster the development of the whole self: social, emotional, creative, cognitive and physical. Positive learning experiences promote good self-esteem and build social skills.  Throughout the day the teaching staff guides and supports the learning experience by creating the environment, asking questions and observing. 

The daily routine incorporates self-select times, clean-up, snack, small and large group activities and teacher directed times. All of these promote the idea that children are active (and energetic) learners who learn best from play activities they plan and carry out themselves. 

We have a close connection with our Jamul Primary kindergarten teachers.  Our four year old students have the opportunity the experience the same Learning Dynamics reading program being used in the kindergarten classrooms.

Above all our goal is for our students to discover the joy of learning.  We want them to love coming to school!  Childhood is such a short time; it should be valued and enjoyed!

We are now accepting enrollment applications.  Applications can be found at the Jamul District Office and on the district web-site below.

Hours of operation are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.

We are closed over weekly school vacations and the summer.

"Jamul Preschool and preschool teacher, Jennifer Emerick, have done an excellent job with my first two granddaughters, preparing them for kindergarten both academically and socially. Granddaughter number three will start in the Fall!  As a teacher of 25 years myself, I highly recommend this program!!  Patrice Hazard, Grandparent (4/18/19)

"Miss Jennifer has been a dream. She is kind, loving and magical. Her play-based teaching has allowed my son the room to flourish the last three years. He is beyond ready to graduate to kindergarten!"  Gabrielle Durren, Parent (4/10/19)

"Miss Jennifer and her preschool class has offered both of my children a safe, fun environment to learn, be social, and gain the skills necessary to thrive in both school and life. We continue to be impressed by her skills, love, and the care she gave to my children. My children love being in her care and enjoy each day in her class. I am sad to say this is the last year for my family to enjoy her class because my youngest will be entering kindergarten, but we will be forever grateful for Miss Jennifer. Thank You!"  The Valdez Family (3/27/19)

"Both of my daughters have benefited from Jamul Preschool's wonderful early child education program. We have always appreciated the caring environment and the gentle guidance provided by Miss Jennifer. We feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to watch our children blossom under her care."  Casie Wright, Parent (3-23-19)
