JCYS Highland Park

The JCYS George W. Lutz Family Center in Highland Park welcomes children and families to a joyful, play-based learning environment where every child receives tailored instruction and individual care. We use an emergent curriculum, meaning that lesson plans are based on children’s interests and curiosity – no two classrooms are the same! Each child has the opportunity to explore his or her unique talents and develop an independent, exploratory approach to learning that lasts for life. We serve children by supporting the whole family – teachers and staff at JCYS Highland Park are committed to engaging parents in the life and community of the center.

JCYS is proud to be an organization dedicated to advancing diversity, equality, and inclusion. On this Juneteenth, we will take a moment to remember and honor this historic day. We will be reminded that there is still work to do as we stand together as a community (Kehillah) dedicated to equality and justice. Through the power of teaching our children the core values of Judaism and humanity including being kind, caring, treating others with respect, and the practice of repairing the world, (Tikkun Olam) we are hopeful that we will help raise an all-inclusive generation. All of us at JCYS look forward to the day when we can celebrate the true equity that should come with independence. ... See MoreSee Less
