2015-2016 Early Childhood Programs

We are pleased to announce the new Boroughs Jewish Community Center’s (BJCC) Early Childhood Programs for the 2015/2016 school year.  Our goal is to provide high quality programs that allow your child to grow and develop.

 

We have created these programs to supplement your child’s learning in creative ways.  We work with your child to encourage imagination and creativity, build self-confidence and self-esteem, and to give them opportunities to cultivate their unique talents.  Trained teachers and specialists lead each program, making your child’s experience a rewarding one.


Early Childhood Programs run for the length of the school year from 7:30 – 6:00 PM for children ages 15 months to 5 years old.

The Boroughs JCC is open to all, regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, or economic condition. The status of toilet training has no bearing on admittance to the Boroughs JCC Preschool. All children are welcome.

We are licensed by the Department of Early Education and Care (EEC) and accredited by the National Association of the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
