Our Philosophy

Sheva. The number seven has extraordinary power in Jewish thought and practice. The core elements of Sheva are firmly rooted in the latest research on child development and are the foundation of our teaching.

“The JCC Program is truly a special place focused on all the most important foundational skills a young child needs to have. The warmth and safe feeling when you walk through the doors to be greeted by you and then by the teachers makes the kids feel like school is an extension of their home. A place they can safely explore and grow in. You have managed to find a way for kids to learn not just about their letters and how to write, but to be creative, to learn through experiences, to learn how to share, how to listen, how to play, and so much more. These are the foundational skills that kids need to thrive as they get older.”
