Full Day Programs

ECDOur full-day childcare program offers the same quality of staff, resources and curriculum as our part-day programs, with additional consideration for the scheduling needs of full-day participants, including daily nap/ rest time. Our programs run the full year through, including our Summer Katan Session. Ask us for a full information and registration packet, including a calendar of closings for Jewish holidays, Maintenance week and others. Membership is required for all full-day programs.


Brief descriptions are included below, and we invite you to review our JCC Program Guide for more information about our Early Childhood programs.  Please contact Ellen Winston, ECD Director, at 372-6567, ext. 122, or email Ellenwinston@jccs.org to arrange for a tour, and learn about our current schedules, fees and availability.
