The Westchester Jewish Center Early Childhood Center (ECC) offers a range of programs for young children. We provide a developmentally appropriate program that supports children’s physical, social, emotional and cognitive growth through varied experiences and activities.
In our Reggio Emilia inspired program, we view children as capable and competent and respect them and their individual needs. The program is implemented for each class depending on the age of the children and their interests. The co–constructed curriculum stimulates their natural curiosity as they explore new ideas. Structured days provide ample opportunities for busy time and quiet time, indoor and outdoor time. A small teacher to student ratio assures that every child gets the individual attention he or she deserves in a safe and secure environment. Children receive a solid Jewish foundation including holiday celebrations, community Shabbat and classroom Shabbat experiences.

We are proud to be a Project SEED school. A collaboration between Westchester Jewish Community Services and the Jewish Education Project, Project SEED (Supporting Early Emotional Development) is designed to help early childhood educators support young children’s emotional development. SEED early childhood consultants are licensed social workers. They facilitate staff development training and work with teachers to build experience in our classroom environments. Through Project SEED, early childhood consultants become integral to the school community and support the directors, teachers and parents in building stronger learning environments for children.
