Registration Information: All currently enrolled GJK families have first priority registration. New families will be processed through a lottery after all currently enrolled families. Acceptance in the program is based on availability in the following order of priority: 1. Child currently attending GJK 2. Child or sibling has at any time attended GJK 3. Child currently resides in Glencoe (i.e., family owns, rents, or has a contract to purchase a home) 4. Child currently resides outside of Glencoe
A $250 registration fee is required for all applicants at the time of registration. The registration fee will be refunded only if space is not available in the program for which you applied.
GJK is an independent, non-profit preschool located in the Takiff Center. If more applications are received within a particular priority group than spaces are available, students will be selected by lottery. Families will be notified by mail from the Glencoe Park District of acceptance in the program within seven days of registration. Applicants for whom space is not available will be placed on a waiting list, if desired. The director retains discretion to make class changes and place children outside of the registration priority or the waiting list if such placement is necessary to maintain age and/or gender balance in the preschool classroom.
