JCC’s Early Childhood Center Program
Our NAEYC accredited program promotes children’s social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth through a multi-sensory approach to teaching. We believe children learn best in a program that emphasizes creative expression through “hands-on” experiences while becoming confident, independent and respectful members of their classroom community.
Our NAEYC accredited Early Childhood Center at the Holland Family Building has 11 classrooms for children from 6 weeks old through pre-K. This program operates year-round, and has many community partnerships. We are proud to offer UPK through the Buffalo Public Schools and after school care for preschool children who attend other schools in the city.
We partner with: Aspire of WNY, the Foster Grandparents Association (Catholic Charities), the Olmsted Center for Sight, and several local colleges.
The Tree of Life Playgrounds offer a park-like setting here in the heart of the city. There are 3 outdoor playgrounds, with separate, developmentally appropriate equipment for each age group, allowing the children to spend many happy hours outdoors. Come over and see one of the 5 oldest trees in the city on our playground!
On the days the children must stay inside, the Noah’s Ark Indoor Playground, located at the lower level of the building, has no equal in Western NY. Additional opportunities for preschool enrichment are offered at this location. These fee based classes are open to the community.
