at The J


Now enrolling!

The Child Development Center (CDC) at The J offers families of children ages 12 months through five years a time-tested plan. We offer both full- and part-time care. We are accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and have 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.

We strive to provide the right:

  1. Environment in which to learn
  2. Tools for rich social and pre-academic development
  3. Path for successful emotional growth

The CDC at The J provides a secure environment designed with child-appropriate equipment and décor, enabling children of all faiths and cultures to learn and grow to their full potential. 

The curriculum, based in Jewish traditions and values, is designed to promote self-esteem, independence, cooperative skills and the ability to problem-solve. Children thrive in our warm, vibrant environment. In addition to our curriculum, children are encouraged to participate in age appropriate activities like American Red Cross swimming lessons, and enrichment classes including cooking, art, science, and more!
