Early Childhood Center

The Douglas Family Early Childhood Center

Our Early Childhood Center nurtures some of our youngest Jewish hearts and minds, ages 2-5. Younger students will find their space in which to thrive in our Parenting Center, which includes our Toddler program. We’re constantly evolving to offer the most ambitious, child-friendly, spirit-rich, and joyful Jewish environment in which to foster curiosity and grow happy kids. With research-based early childhood educational approaches, loving and highly-qualified teachers, joyful holiday celebrations, and stunning indoor and outdoor facilities, our ECC gives your child a warm, supportive space in which imagination is set free.

Our educational philosophy is Constructivist and play-based at its core, and our curriculum, which is often emergent and always exploratory and engaging, is rooted in developmentally-appropriate practice. Here, we see learning as an active, social endeavor and we strive to educate all aspects of your child: social, spiritual, cognitive, physical, and emotional. 

We place a high value on the partnership between home and school. Each student plays a significant and important role in the classroom, and each parent will find a welcoming and supportive community. We invite you to come and see for yourself.
