Loved the care our daughter received in the infant room. Teachers were knowledgeable, loving, and positive. They were always willing to lend an ear or helpful suggestions. My family would highly recommend!

In the beginning we brought our almost two-year old, who rarely spoke, to the Early Childhood Center at the Alliance JCC. She was shy, introverted, and often fearful of new situations and noises. Your team took my little girl and returned to me a bright, sunny-dispositioned, and very active toddler who now approaches the world with curiosity, wonder, and care. These teachers are not only gifted but gifting to each of the parents and children that come into their classroom. This will be an experience that our family will appreciate and reflect upon for years to come.
