The preschool years are the time when children are open to the world and to learning the basis of language, physical skills and social interactions. At the JCC, three, four and five year olds enjoy swimming in our indoor heated pool, working off energy in our full-sized gymnasium and climbing in our Noah’s Ark Biblical-theme playground. Families participate in a variety of events, such as the annual Pajama Party, Nursery School Art Show, Holiday Parties and School Visit Day, and are invited to share a Friday Shabbat with their child’s class. Great programs also available for two year olds!
Goals: Promote healthy physical, social and cognitive growth; encourage self-awareness, understanding and confidence; and help youngsters develop a sense of security with adults and peers in a safe, nurturing environment.
Warm, competent, experienced teachers (licensed in Early Childhood Education) and assistant teachers are all supervised by the Director.
