Our Early Childhood Program

Young children learn best through active exploration and play. At the Gordon JCC Early Childhood Learning Community (ECLC), we use a Reggio Emilia inspired approach, with hands on learning in art, music, science, literacy, and math. What seems like a great fun to a child is actually a carefully planned approach to help develop skills to assist your child in preparing for Kindergarten. We embrace character-building, joyful and inclusive rituals and celebrations, and a values-based environment through a Jewish lens. We believe creating community means participating with those who are different from us. We welcome families of all backgrounds.
