- The JCC's ECE developmentally appropriate play-based curriculum is designed to help nurture the inquisitive, outgoing spirit in children to investigate and explore their surroundings. Your child will engage in experiences guided by skilled teachers, who know exactly when to actively supervise, to stimulate or scaffold, to inconspicuously watch, or to provide warmth and nurturing. The JCC's ECE educational program is based on an integrated approach to child development where the Creative Arts, Sciences, Literacy and Numeracy skills are incorporated within the daily activities of the classrooms. Your child will be involved in 'hands-on' learning where concepts and skills are experienced as integrated parts of learning and exploration, rather than isolated proficiencies. The daily schedule is designed to balance active play and quiet rest, individual attention and group interaction, free choice and structured activities. The balance of planned and emergent programming supports the development of not only basic skills, but also the higher level critical thinking skills of observation, questioning, problem solving, and making predictions. At the JCC, your child is exposed to the beauty and excitement of Jewish life; they learn through celebration and instruction as well as by playing in an environment rich in Jewish traditions.
