Let's Get Social!

Westchester Jewish Center Early Childhood Center

175 Rockland Ave.





The Westchester Jewish Center Early Childhood Center (ECC) is a warm and nurturing environment that encourages and supports children’s cognitive, social, emotional and physical growth. The ECC is a progressive early childhood school where children are active learners, exploring and experimenting in a developmentally-appropriate manner. The ECC takes inspiration from a range of child-centered approaches to early childhood education with an emphasis on play-based and experiential learning. We view children as capable and competent and respect their individual needs and interests. A small teacher-to-student ratio assures that every child gets the individual attention he or she deserves in a safe and secure environment.

“Say Good-Bye” SUMMER CAMP -

“Say Good-Bye” SUMMER CAMP

We help your child ease into separation with our “gentle separation” summer camp program. Designed especially for children 18 months to 3½ years old, we are diaper friendly. Group sizes are small and led by mature, professional teachers who understand child development. Water play, nature, gardening, cooking, music & movement, and outdoor play are all part of a fun and healthy summer.



A once-a-week class for tots 1-2 years with an adult. Children play and explore, participate in story time, music, crafts and make first friends in this interactive class.



Children receive a solid Jewish foundation centered around the celebration of holidays and values such as tzedakah (charity) and tikkun olam (repairing the world). Children also welcome Shabbat in their class every week and gather on Fridays with our clergy for a larger community Shabbat celebration.
