Welcome to Kindergarten

Whether your family will be new to our school, or you are already part of our school community, kindergarten is a wonderful year at LJES! We offer a full day kindergarten program from 8:15am-2:45pm, with a 12:20 dismissal each Wednesday. We will also offer universal transitional kindergarten (UTK) for the 2023-2024 school year, and it follows the same schedule. 
To register a child for Kindergarten, please bring two current proofs of residency, the child's birth certificate or passport, and their immunization record to the school office. For questions regarding enrollment, please email Lisa Schrift at [email protected].  You can also contact the school office at 619-605-3300 during the school year (please note that the office closes from mid-June to mid-August).
We usually have playdates in July and August in order to provide a fun way for incoming Kindergarten families to meet each other, as well as to familiarize the children with the Kindergarten area before the start of the school year. This year, due to construction, the play dates will be held at the La Jolla Recreation Center at 615 Prospect Street. We also usually have a Kindergarten BBQ in August. This year it will be a picnic, location TBD, on 8/19 from 11:30am-1:30pm.

2023 summer playdates will be:  6/25 from 10:00-11:30am, 7/9 from 3:30-5:00pm, 8/5 from 10:00-11:30am
