Thank you for your interest in applying to Just Us Kids ("JUK")! JUK is a comparatively small center, with only 12 spaces in each of the Infant, Toddler, and Twos classrooms, 14 spaces in the Threes room, and 16 spaces in the Fours room. Our waitlist, on the other hand, usually contains hundreds of children. Because the demand for child care spaces at JUK far exceeds the supply, some children will wait for many months or even years before a spot is available.

The priority for enrollment at JUK is: (1) siblings of currently-enrolled children at JUK, with at least one parent or legal guardian who is currently employed by the Department of Justice; (2) children with at least one parent or legal guardian who is currently employed by the Department of Justice; (3) siblings of currently-enrolled children at JUK, with at least one parent or legal guardian who is currently employed by any other federal agency; (4) children whose parent or legal guardian is currently employed by another federal agency; (5) siblings of currently-enrolled children at JUK, with no parent or legal guardian employed by any federal agency; and (6) children with no parent or legal guardian employed by any federal agency.

Some children – particularly those whose parent/s are not Department of Justice employees – will unfortunately never be offered a space at JUK. We recognize that obtaining childcare can be a lengthy and frustrating process, and we thank you in advance for your patience.
