“The JCC Program is truly a special place, focused on all the most important foundational skills a young child needs. The warmth and safe feeling when you walk through the doors makes the kids feel like school is an extension of home. 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.”
