Early Childhood & Family Engagement


By offering a high-quality Jewish educational environment that is both warm and welcoming, the Jewish community can inspire young children and their families to experience vibrant Jewish lives. Throughout the year, we provide opportunities for educators to connect with one another, to learn about the evolving needs of families, and to develop cutting edge approaches that meet the needs of the Jewish community’s newest members. Together with leaders and providers of early childcare and enrichment programs, we’re rewarding changes that help make this vision a reality.
