Kindergarten Overview

Welcome to Kindergarten at Denver Jewish Day School


Little learners find big things to be excited about here.

Being an inquisitive, engaged, joyful student starts right here in kindergarten with innovative and rigorous academics guided by tradition and Jewish values.

Our teacher-to-student ratio for kindergarten is wonderfully small, giving each unique learner the space to be creative, relish the joy of discovery, ask questions, try new things, and gain confidence and a sense of curiosity that will stay with them throughout their education and beyond.

Here are a few important things to know about kindergarten at Denver JDS

Our unique sense of community makes Denver JDS more than just a school, and kindergarten is the best first step into experiencing all the warmth, caring and welcoming of an entire school dedicated to raising each other up.

  • Children must be five years old by October 1, 2024 to be eligible to apply to kindergarten for the 2024-25 school year.
