Additional Information:

The Katz JCC Early Childhood Education Center is a competitively priced six-week childcare through kindergarten center with secure, superior facilities, where everyone is welcome.

Our dedicated and professional teachers and support staff follow a philosophy based on the humanistic view of the child as an independent and individual learner.

Our classrooms are bubbling with learning, exploration, discovery, movement, questions and answers and lots of family involvement. This, along with an introduction to Hebrew, to create an accepting and loving environment, allows our students to have experiences way beyond the four walls of a classroom. We have highly qualified teachers in every room.

The Katz JCC Early Childhood Education Center is unique in that we offer much more than what can be expected from a one-room schoolhouse. We have swim classes in our indoor pool, a full-size gym, an expansive outdoor recreation facility, technology classes in our computer lab and hands-on classes in our interactive nature and science room.

Our center follows the guidelines of The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the nation’s leading voice for high-quality early childhood education from birth through age eight.

For over five decades, the Katz JCC has been at the forefront of early childhood education in Atlantic County. We are proud of the accomplishments of our infant care, preschool and kindergarten programs and look forward to continuing our tradition of providing social/emotional, intellectual and aesthetic growth for all of our students.

Our state-of-the-art security system will allow you to rest assured that your child will be safe and secure while providing you with peace of mind.

“The JCC is part of our family. They truly have been a big part in helping us raise our children,”

~ Karen & Michael Bowman
