Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"No other preschool can match our combination of caring, experience, dedication and expertise. We start with enthusiastic teachers who love children and love to teach; then we provide them with extensive training and continuing education. Our team of specialists is always adding new curricula based on the latest research — all to ensure that your child is having the best possible learning experience.
In fact, recent studies have confirmed what JCC has known for years — preschool children learn best through active exploration, rather than through drills, workbooks, or memorization. So, instead of rows of desks and homework... visualize your child making friends during circle time, learning new words in a story, counting colors while finger-painting, lighting Shabbat candles, experimenting with make believe, clicking icons on the computer, examining with a magnifying glass, playing hop scotch on the playground.
What's good fun to a preschooler is actually a carefully planned approach to help your child develop the social, emotional, physical, spiritual and academic skills so essential for school and for life.
