Early Childhood School

The Stroum Jewish Community Center Early Childhood combines Jewish values and leading theory and pedagogy in early childhood development to create an environment where children become compassionate, curious, and confident learners. Upon this foundation lifelong friendships form, traditions thrive, and community strengthens.

At the SJCC Early Childhood School we provide innovative experiences that help build a strong foundation in language, math, and early literacy while instilling a love for learning. Our experienced educators support the “whole child,” including emotional, social, cognitive, and physical development.

We offer programs for children ages 3 months to 5 years old and their families with exceptionally low child-to-teacher ratio and class size, which ensures the individual needs of each child are met.

Beautiful, open classrooms filled with high-quality, open-ended, natural materials encourage children to create, explore, test their theories about the world, and develop emerging skills.

The school offers a variety of outdoor spaces to explore. Our community garden and multiple age-appropriate play areas ensure children stay challenged as they engage with nature and grow their physical abilities. Music, swimming, art studio, library, and little gym are all a regular part of your child’s experience, providing even more venues for discovery and joy.

The Early Childhood School welcomes everyone. Joy, learning, and celebrating together are core SJCC values that underlie all ECS programming.
