9:00 –11:30am

The preschool years are the time when children are open to the world and to learning the basis of language, physical skills, and social interactions.

As I dropped my son off at school this morning and he happily ran to his bright, colorful classroom and the warm embrace of his teachers, I couldn’t help but think how incredibly lucky I was to have found the JCCMW ECC; it makes me feel like a better Mom...‘Learning through play’ is more than just a tagline here...My two year old, through his dedicated, warm, and nurturing classroom teachers and the gym, music, and gymnastics ‘specials’ teachers, has learned his colors, shapes, ABCs, dramatically expanded his vocabulary, made friends, cooked, learned to take turns and clean up, learned to use the potty, learned to count to ten forwards and backwards, and learned the basics of various sports. Most importantly, he has had a blast doing it. The JCCMW ECC has exceeded all of my highest hopes. We can’t wait for next year!
