Our Philosophies & Goals
Our caring and experienced staff encourages joy for learning, enthusiasm for exploration and discovery and a high regard for self and others. The result is an environment that offers one of the city’s finest early childhood programs.
We Inspire Jewish Journeys
Together with the JCC Director of Jewish Life and Learning, our teachers are able to explore fundamental Jewish concepts and values and work collaboratively to develop learning experiences that are developmentally appropriate in the classrooms.
Through experiences including cooking, singing, art, literacy and more, children in all age groups are able to take a Jewish journey through the rich traditions of Judaism. Friday mornings bring a special celebration of the Sabbath with school–wide group singing, concerts, where parents are encouraged to attend.
The Power of the Learning Environment
Our classroom design and play–based curriculum encourage children to make choices and to work independently and in small groups.
Developmental areas such as literacy and creative arts,math, problem solving and dramatic play are experienced through an environment which offers open-ended materials and equipment, allowing children the chance to use their imagination and creativity to foster their development.
Positive relationships with parents are fundamental in the work that we do at the ECC. The Parent Teacher Leadership Committee counts on parent involvement to enhance various aspects of our community through fundraising, special events and parent education.
