Early Childhood Learning Center

Our school’s areas of focus ensure that every child’s educational journey starts with confidence and exploration. While learning in these focus areas prepares children for later schooling, the Rosen JCC’s Early Childhood Learning Center takes the learning process beyond traditional academic subjects. We apply methods that promote independence, curiosity, decision making, cooperation, persistence, creativity, and problem solving in young children.


We encourage you to review the areas below. We hope you will schedule a visit so that we can discuss your child’s academic and social development within our program.
