Fun for Preschoolers of All Abilities

The Weinstein JCC’s Early Childhood Department brings preschool children with special needs a very special summer. We offer an inclusive Early Childhood and camp program for children enrolled in our preschool/childcare program during the current school year. If your child is currently enrolled in our 2020–2021 preschool year and is receiving outside support services (OT/PT, Speech, etc.), he or she is eligible for this unique program. A pre-application meeting is required for all children with special needs who aren’t currently in the 2020-2021 preschool year. To determine eligibility, and to begin developing and implementing support strategies, a meeting is required for new children entering our program during summer camp. Call Melissa Bunce, Youth, Family, Camping & Support Services Director, at (804) 545-8658 to schedule a meeting.

For more information about summer camps at the Weinstein JCC, please contact Youth, Family, Camping & Support Services Director, Missy Bunce, at mbunce@weinsteinjcc.org or 804-545-8658.
