OUR MISSION is to help children become excited learners and kind, contributing citizens. We offer children a host of opportunities to innovate, create and play together within a community of learners, while encouraging self-expression, discovery and imagination. Our curriculum is driven by the Jewish (and universal) values of kindness, respect, compassion, confidence and responsibility, and we warmly welcome children of all faiths, ethnicities and backgrounds.
ESTABLISHING A LOVE OF LEARNING is central to the mission of The JCC Preschool at Greenwich Reform Synagogue (GRS). Utilizing developmentally-appropriate educational principles and practices, our school’s professional educators provide an introduction to formal education with a child-initiated and teacher-directed approach to learning. By capturing and building on a child’s natural enthusiasm, we begin to help children build the self-esteem that is essential to giving them the confidence to excel in school and in life.
OUR PHILOSOPHY Early childhood is a magical time of cognitive, emotional and physical growth. Through exploration, creative play, questioning and a wide variety of activities, your child will begin to discover his or her place in the larger world. We are committed to enabling and empowering children to develop physically, socially and cognitively, while nurturing self awareness, self-esteem, intellectual curiosity and critical-thinking skills in our warm, safe, and caring environment.
