Toddler Care and Preschool

Our toddler and preschool programming (ages 15 months – 5 years) uses a play-based approach that provides children plenty of opportunities to explore their world and develop a love of learning. Preschoolers at JCYS George W. Lutz Family Center build academic and social skills during group times for stories, singing, language development, science, cooking, and games. Individualized learning centers dedicated to puzzles, crafts, and other activities provide opportunities to practice fine motor skills such as writing and cutting. We celebrate Shabbat, build Jewish values, and foster knowledge about holidays and their customs.

Teachers send home daily newsletters detailing the child’s day and highlighted activities. JCYS Highland Park also provides a weekly newsletter, sent out by the leadership team, outlining program updates, general information, fun-family ideas for the weekend, and Shabbat blessings and recipes.
