Our Early Childhood Program:
Young children learn best through active exploration and play. At the Gordon JCC Early Childhood Learning Community (ECLC) programs,, 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.
Our JCC Facility includes:
Four indoor and outdoor pools (including two saltwater pools) for year round certified swim instruction and water play.
Multiple age-appropriate, modern outdoor play areas to further strengthen the bonds of friendship through play.
A secure, verdant 52 acre campus in the heart of Bellevue, allowing for outdoor exploration by your child.
Easy access to families living in Bellevue, West Meade, Hillwood, Sylvan Park, Franklin, Forest Hills, & Green Hills.
