The PJCC Preschool incorporates an exciting values-based curriculum into all programs. An Ethical Start is based on the classic Jewish text of Pirkei Avot (Ethics of the Fathers and Mothers). Our specially trained staff creates an environment of hands-on discovery and discussion, encouraging children to make decisions based, not on impulse, but on Jewish ethics and values, such as respect, responsibility, kindness and community.
"When we moved our son to the PJCC preschool we knew it was going to be a terrific environment. Our expectations were exceeded and we couldn't have asked for a more wonderful preschool experience for him. Thank you for all your efforts (and everyone on the Preschool team) to provide an exceptional education". -- Preschool Parent
Tiny Tots: 18-24 months
Our Tiny Tot program is a lively, enriching opportunity for young children to join in activities geared to a toddler’s interests and attention span. During a typical class the children may engage with paint or clay, dance the Hokey Pokey, create craters in the sandbox, ride trikes on the playground and sit in a circle for story time. This class gives children a chance to begin socializing with their peers while offering parents an opportunity to develop friendships with other young families from the community. The Ethical Start curriculum, Music assemblies and Physical Education Specialists enrich the program.
K’ton ton (Little People): Two-Year-Olds
Children enjoy a secure and caring environment where separation from parents is supported. Each day offers a balance of quiet and active experiences which match and stimulate developmental needs. Time is planned for exploration and experimentation, emphasizing the experience and not the finished product. Toilet teaching is incorporated into the program.
Keshet (Rainbow): Three-Year-Olds
This theme-based curriculum allows children to develop social and language skills through a variety of interactive activities, such as painting, drawing, music and movement. Gross and fine motor development is stimulated with an emphasis on listening and group skills. Children also learn about themselves, the world around them and the richness of Jewish life in an atmosphere of love, joy, respect and security.
Kee Tov (Something Good): Four-Year-Olds
Establishing a strong foundation in the early years is a critical component to becoming a successful student. This program focuses on early literacy development and prepares children for the more structured reading and math they will encounter in kindergarten. Children continue to develop their social, problem solving and conflict resolution skills.
Extended Day Options For Preschoolers
Children in our morning program can Stay & Play two, three or five days per week from noon until 1:00 pm, 3:00 pm or 6:00 pm in contracted or drop-in care. Enrichment Classes enrich the program with specialists in arts and sports. Classes will meet weekly from 1:00 - 2:00 pm in 10-week sessions after lunch. This program offers fun-filled afternoons for children needing extended care. A thoughtfully planned curriculum balances engaging activities with a relaxed, gently paced rhythm. Activities include art, science, cooking and playground time. A two hour nap period is available after lunch.
