About Our Preschool
The Edlavitch DCJCC Preschool fosters a nurturing environment of open-ended exploration and growth that deepens our connections to Judaism, our community, and the world around us. Our program provides a day full of learning and fun for children ages 2–5, year-round, from 7:45 am–4:15 pm with the additional option of aftercare until 6:00 pm. We welcome all families, regardless of religion, race, family type, or cultural background.
INFORMATION ABOUT THE 2020-21 SCHOOL YEAR
The EDCJCC Preschool is planning to open on September 1, 2020, under all applicable guidelines and regulations from OSSE (our licensing office), the Mayor’s office, and the CDC. We are planning to be open 5 days a week, for 8 hours a day, with limited numbers of children and teachers in each classroom. At the moment, we have limited spots available for the school year.

We are proud of our commitment to a child-centered, emergent curriculum that promotes a collaborative learning environment. We view children as curious, competent and capable of co-constructing knowledge. Documentation shows the process of the children’s work and highlights the discoveries that have grown from their explorations.
Our rooms are warm and welcoming and provide carefully designed areas that encourage active exploration and creativity as well as spaces that encourage reflection and concentration. We encourage children and teachers to use all available materials in their discovery process. In addition to our newly renovated and light-filled classrooms, our facility includes child-size bathrooms, an art room, gross-motor play areas with soft equipment, a dance studio, and a swimming pool.
We invite you to visit our school to see the children learning through play. Visit our Admissions page for more information about Tours. Check out our FAQ page for more details about our program. And read more about our approach to Child Centered Learning.
