Our PreK students are ages three, four, and early five. Children must be three years old by June 1 of the enrollment year, and they must be toilet trained. Kindergarten students must be 5 by June 1st.
Lunch + Snacks
Children should bring their own lunches everyday except Fridays when Chef Raquel from A Pinch of Salt prepares a homemade, healthy lunch for the whole school.
AJLA will provide water at lunchtime and healthful snacks in the morning and afternoon, in accordance with the Department of Health nutrition guidelines.
Financial aid is provided to all families who cannot afford to pay full tuition, and is determined by income and need. No child will be denied admission due to an inability to pay.
AJLA follows the Bridgeport Public Schools in determining when to close for inclement weather. School closings and delays will be emailed and texted to parents as well as posted on the BPS website and on www.ctweather.com.
