Early Childhood Services

Our year-round Early Childhood Education (ECE) program engages children in activities that promote creativity, accelerate learning and stimulate social interaction. Everything we do is focused on developing skills for life and ensuring every child is well-prepared academically and socially for the years ahead. All children over the age of twelve months will celebrate holidays to share universal values, Jewish culture and observance of traditions for children of all faiths.
