Preschool through Kindergarten
Children begin their school years at the JCC in a warm, nurturing environment led by experienced, certified early childhood educators. At the Stoler ECE, we provide a well-rounded program designed to build a child's self-confidence, encourage friendships, and explore new concepts. Our challenging curriculum includes music, art, circle time, swimming, gym, Hebrew, cooking, creative play and more. Our program also introduces children to the customs and traditions of Jewish life, Shabbat and Jewish holidays through the integration of songs, art, stories, food and special guests.
The facility features sparkling classrooms, child-size bathrooms, a gross motor room, teaching kitchen, and computer areas. The rooms are furnished with the latest, as well as time-honored, games, toys, furniture, and other materials. Our students have access to three outdoor playgrounds each of which offers a totally different environment for creative play and learning.

Healthy Choices Curriculum
Funded by the Ben & Esther Rosenbloom Foundation, the Healthy Choices curriculum teaches children about the importance of eating fruits and vegetables, whole grains and healthy proteins. On any given day our students eagerly test out new foods like Kale, Quinoa, and Kiwi. They eat together family-style, politely sharing utensils and waiting for everyone to get settled. They do art projects based on themes like “anytime foods” (fruits & veggies, etc.) and “sometimes food” (ice cream, cake, candy, potato chips, etc) and they also learn to listen to their bodies so that they eat enough but not too much. The Healthy Choices program is recognized by Michelle Obama's Let's Move Initiative.
