There is almost nothing cuter than walking through the lobby at the J and passing a line of tiny people all bundled up in snowsuits, holding hands as they head out to our courtyard playground. It brightens everybody's day and we know this because of all the "awwwws" we hear daily! Our schools are the beating heart of the J. From toddlers who have just learned to walk to Grade 6 students gearing up for their B'Mitzvah... our Childcare, Preschool & JK, and onsite Jewish day and supplementary schools offer a warm, welcoming, and conveniently well-located place for your children to spend their day laughing and learning.
Our "Learn Through Play" philosophy encourages the children to freely explore their surroundings. Our program is child-directed and teacher-supported. The primary goal of our centre is to provide the children with a warm and respectful place where they feel safe and content. We celebrate the importance of social relationships and promote meaningful and collaborative learning.
We hope to inspire a journey, not a destination, that is not linear or prescriptive, and that reflects the ongoing evolution of a discipline. A central part of the process is our Sheva Learning Communities, in which our early childhood educators network with each other in dialogue over the core elements, exemplary practices, critical incidents, knots in their work and more.
This very popular program runs Monday to Friday for the whole academic year. We provide a fun, safe, age-appropriate program for children with activities including art, yoga, drama, basketball, swimming, pottery, soccer and much more! We offer a helpful Pick-Up and Walk-Over option from local schools
