Preschool Programs

At the PJCC Preschool, our programs emphasize each child’s unique journey, encouraging individual learning at each child’s own pace. Our play-based learning environment is supported by the most current child development research, and engages young minds by sparking their creativity, curiosity, and imagination.

We are guided by Jewish principles and culture, including the value of Hachnasat Or’chim (welcoming all)and the importance of Kehilla u’Mishpacha (our community of family and friends). Inspired by these values, our preschool emphasizes the importance of relationship building and social development, recognizing each child’s unique and special abilities.

Children are not required to be toilet trained to attend our programs; toilet learning is incorporated into the classroom as needed.

K’ton ton (Little People): Age 2 by September 1

The youngest children in our preschool enjoy a safe, nurturing environment where they explore their introduction to the school environment. Experienced teachers offer a comfortable playscape that helps foster each child’s individual needs of adjustment to the program. Singing songs together, baking cakes in the play kitchen, outdoor exploration and story time are a few of the activities children engage in each day. Adult to child ratio is 1:6.

Keshet (Rainbow): Age 3 by September 1

Our three-year-old classes develop social, emotional, language, and literary skills while building motor and cognitive development through facilitated peer-to-peer engagement. Painting at an easel, exploring dramatic play with colorful costumes, building cities out of wooden blocks, reading books together, and enjoying music are just some of the ways we learn and explore the world around us in this class. Adult to child ratio 1:8.*

* During the COVID-19 pandemic, ratios are slightly lower in accordance with CDC and State Licensing regulations.

Kee Tov (Something Good): Age 4 by September 1

Pre-Kindergarten (PreK) and Transitional Kindergarten (TK)

Our Kee Tov program prepares children for a successful transition to an academic program and supports their developing social and emotional skills. Children gain confidence and competency in navigating social situations and develop independence that sets them up for success in Kindergarten. This program enjoys bi-monthly swimming lessons to further support gross motor development. Adult to child ratio 1:9.*

* During the COVID-19 pandemic, ratios are slightly lower in accordance with CDC and State Licensing regulations.
