Play with a Purpose
During their Nursery School years, children are open to the world and to learning the basics of language, physical skills and social interactions. At the JCC Nursery School, our trained, caring staff help your child achieve 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.
Our Nursery School offers morning and full day options for 2s, 3s and 4s. We follow the Get Set for School® curriculum, which is part of Learning without Tears™. Our students LOVE it!! We get our students singing, dancing, coloring, building and exploring as they develop age-appropriate knowledge that sets them up for success in Kindergarten.
Our Nursery School students enjoy learning to swim in our indoor heated pool, working off energy in our full-sized gymnasium, and climbing in our new Nursery School playground. Nursery School 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.
