Our Early Childhood Program

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