Give your child the gift of education rooted in
Judaic values in a play based environment.
Our educational approach values learning experiences through play, with activities and materials that encourage creativity, self-expression and inquiry. Our quality half- and full-day curricula framed within an enriched Jewish environment provides a secure and loving atmosphere so that young children can develop a positive self-image and grow intellectually, physically, emotionally, and socially. The daily schedule is a consistent routine, which allows for flexibility and attention to individual interests and preferences.
Our program encourages children’s social, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth through a curriculum attuned to the individual child’s unique pattern of development. We believe that children learn best in a program that has both a clear structure to it, as well as the flexibility to incorporate the needs and interests of the children, which emphasizes creative expression through “hands-on” experiences.
The ECC staff provides experiences that promote Jewish values, which are also human values.
If you were to peek into our classrooms, you might see children involved in conversations, listening to a story, playing dress up, baking challah, constructing with blocks, looking at books, playing musical instruments, or drawing pictures. We are pleased to offer a program which is rich in Jewish culture, tradition, and values. We celebrate all of the Jewish feasts as well as many secular holidays. Our children are fortunate to also have access to the wonderful Dwares JCC facility, which includes an indoor pool, gymnasium, art studio, community garden, and playground.
