Ages served: 21 months to kindergarten age
The Early Childhood Department offers a variety of age-appropriate activities to accommodate the developmental needs of children 21 months to kindergarten age. Our non-competitive atmosphere allows each child to blossom socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually. Teachers in the Early Childhood Department are enthusiastic, warm, competent and experienced in working with young children. Families enrolling in any Early Childhood Program must be JCC Members.
Our 5-day nursery program is designed with the understanding that pre-schoolers learn best in a hands-on environment that encourages self-expression and self-discovery. Incorporated in our program is an emphasis on Jewish content. Holidays, history, and traditions are celebrated with appropriate crafts, food, music, stories, games, and dramatic play.
