Early Childhood

“Learning is a lifelong process”
 

It begins when children participate in an environment that offers a variety of activities that challenge and interest them. During these early years, learning experiences must be diverse, creative, carefully planned and based upon sound principles of child development.

Early childhood is the most critical period in human growth and development. It is the time when the foundations and pathways for academic achievement are laid. Children learn that play is an important vehicle for their social, emotional, and cognitive development, as well as a reflection of their growth. Children begin to develop communication and language skills while learning to be sensitive to the needs and feelings of themselves and others.

Our Early Childhood Center was founded over 4o years ago and continues to be long admired as a school that provides a safe, warm, and nurturing environment to children from our community and surrounding areas. We are a Jewish preschool open to families of all faiths and committed to providing a play-based, high quality early childhood education to all children while embracing the values and traditions of Judaism.

We recognize that every family is unique and offer a personalized program to meet these needs. You may customize your child’s program to fit exactly what you need. You can choose from a “Traditional” school year program, September through June, 9:00am to 12:00pm with the option to increase hours as needed, or you may require an "All Year” program which encompasses the hours of 7:00am to 5:00pm or 6:00pm all year long including BTBJ Camp during the summer!

Our children enrolled range from ages 3months to 5 years old.
