Description: For more than 30 years, our unique Early Childhood Jewish Education program has provided a high quality, safe, nurturing, inclusive environment that promotes the physical, social, emotional, spiritual and cognitive development of children. At the same time we foster a positive Jewish identify and help each child develop an appreciation of their Jewish heritage. In addition, we offer a child-centered, play-centered developmentally appropriate curriculum for young children. Har Shalom ECEC is approved by the Maryland State Department of Education and commended by the Partnership for Jewish Life and Learning (PJLL). We include children with special needs and we accept children of all races, creeds and national origins.
Where possible, ChildcareCenter provides inspection reports as a service to families. This information is deemed reliable, but is not guaranteed. We encourage families to contact the daycare provider directly with any questions or concerns, as the provider may have already addressed some or all issues. Reports can also be verified with your local daycare licensing office.
