Preschool at the Weinstein JCC

Alive with Imagination

Preschool Registration

After a careful, thorough, and reflective review we are pleased to move forward adding more options for our full-day and half-day programs. We continue to provide continuous care/school in a loving and nurturing environment. We happily continue to offer a reimagined preschool model this coming 2022-2023 school year! 

The children have proven to be resilient and extremely happy to be with their peers, friends, and teachers. They continue to amaze us as they show an enthusiasm and excitement for wondering, exploring, and learning!
