"The first years of children's lives are among the most wondrous. Their appetite for exploration is constant and as their discovery is satisfied, their early experiences will shape their lives. Jewish tradition has always maintained that a lifetime love of learning must begin by providing a sound educational foundation during the early development stages. Here at the Valley of the Sun JCC Early Childhood Center, we help you begin your child's life journey.
All of our programs are based on the developmental philosophy of early childhood education. We are certified by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and licensed by the Arizona Department of Health Services. By combining nurturing, learning and fun, your child will easily grasp the full potential of the life experiences offered. Learning to speak and listen, to be both an individual and part of a group will help build a solid foundation for a fulfilled and successful future.
In our preschool program, we encourage children to experience the world through a wide range of creative play and hands on activities which allow your child to develop at an individual pace while mastering social skills. Weekly interaction with sports, Judaic and music specialists as well activities in drama, language arts, creative movement, art, finger plays, story time, cooking, games, science and math readiness are used to spark your child's curiosity, develop imagination and promote self-esteem. In addition, afternoon enrichment is offered to "awake three and four year olds" while a nap room is available the children who still need to rest
