The Friedberg JCC Early Childhood Center will be your child’s
“home away from home” filled with love and smiles!


The Friedberg Jewish Community Center is proud of our Early Childhood Centers’ high quality programming and excellent staff. Our programs, serving children birth to 5 years old and their families, are licensed by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services. Each of our four Early Childhood Centers is designed to facilitate the growth of children physically, socially and cognitively. Our Judaic and secular holiday and enrichment programs add an extra dimension to your child’s preschool experience.

Our Philosophy

As leaders in the Early Childhood community, our year-round programs embrace developmentally appropriate practices and utilize differentiated teaching styles within our curriculum.

We understand that each child has an individual learning style as well as a personal timetable for development. In our child centered classrooms, individual interests are identified, and activities are planned that give each child an opportunity for exploration and self-direction. Our children acquire social competence and the skills they need to succeed as lifelong learners.

Welcome CATCH!Print

The JCC welcomes CATCH to its lineup in Early Childhood. CATCH is a national campaign, offering a coordinated approach to child health. The goal is to incorporate active learning into all thematic units. Activity cards provide warm up, movement and cool-down suggestions that are engaging, fun and meaningful. CATCH is cutting edge and a wonderful step towards bringing total wellness to our youngest members.
