Early Childhood School
Our Early Childhood School welcomes children 3 months to 5 years old and their families. We have campuses on Mercer Island and in North Seattle. Our mission is to support the potential of each child through a collaborative learning process. Children are encouraged to test their theories of the world so as to develop a love of learning, a strong sense of self-reliance, and a strong foundation for critical thinking. Children and families in our school are inspired to form a strong, meaningful Jewish identity through their experiences.
The SJCC Early Childhood School welcomes everyone. You don’t have to be Jewish to enroll your children in our school. We are a non-profit school and are not part of any franchise or chain. This means we are able to truly focus on providing the most responsive, engaging, and nurturing environment for your child. Our low staff-to-child ratios, incredible longevity of our faculty and staff, and low staff turnover is all testament to our exceptional school.
