Gold-Medal Winner for Best Preschool in the 2016 Bay Area Parent "Best of the Best" Awards!
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.

Hear what parents have to say!
"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
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 2, 3 or 5 days per week from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm or 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm in contracted or drop-in care. This program offers a rest time and 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 between 1:00pm and 3:00pm is offered for our K’ton ton children.
Enrichment Classes are offered for an extra fee and offered in the Fall, Winter and Spring for children 3–5 years old. The enrichments are run by specialists, usually outside providers in arts and sports. Classes meet weekly from 1:00–2:00 pm in 7-to-10-week sessions. To see which classes are currently available or upcoming, please review our current listing of specialty enrichment programs for your child.
