Child Development Center (CDC)
at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City
Your child wants it. You need it. We have it.
The J's Child Development Center provides a secure environment that allows children of all backgrounds to live up to their full potential. The Child Development Center Preschool is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and 5 stars in Quality Rating System (QRS). The curriculum, based on Jewish traditions and values, is designed for children of all faiths and cultures to promote self-esteem, independence, cooperative skills and the ability to problem-solve. Children of all backgrounds thrive in our warm, vibrant environment. Age appropriate activities are offered and the facility has been designed using child-appropriate equipment and decor.
The CDC at The J offers families of children ages 12 months through five years a time-tested plan. We've been providing outstanding child care for more than 80 years. Although our program has grown, evolved and matured, much like our students, our philosophy has stayed brilliantly intact.
Our three-tiered plan:
- The right environment in which to learn
- The right tools for rich social and pre-academic development
- The right path for successful emotional growth
The CDC holds accreditation through the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). NAEYC accreditation for young children represents the mark of raising the level of quality in early childhood education programs. Quality early childhood experiences have an enormous inpact on children's lifelong learning and positively contribute to their health and development. The CDC's mark of quality benefits children with greater readiness for and success in school. The CDC not only met the NAEYC program criteria, but in many core areas, exceeded the standards with a score of over 100%.
