Early Childhood Center




 The Boulder JCC Early Childhood Center is designed to enhance the social, emotional, linguistic, cognitive, and physical development of each child. Our school offers opportunities for exploration and discovery in a play-based, educational environment. We strive to nourish children's innate sense of wonder, curiosity, imagination, and self esteem. We welcome children ages 6 weeks through Kindergarten.

As a play and constructivist-based Reggio Emilia inspired school, we believe that education is a process, brought on by the child's interaction with their immediate world. It is through playing in this world that each child is encouraged and stimulated to wonder, explore, experiment, and to discover, using their own unique learning style and interests. As a Jewish school, we approach our work with children through Jewish lenses. Learn more about our philosophy.

The JCC has been an incredible place for our boys to grow and blossom.  We couldn't be happier with the warm, loving and creative environment all of the teachers and staff provide for the kids.  Through art, music and trips to the farm to teach children about appreciating the beauty around them.  The J also provides community for parents and a resource for Jewish education in Boulder.  There is truly no more wonderful place!

The JCC has become the cornerstone of my family's' involvement in the Boulder community. Not only has our daughter gone through the infant and toddler classes, but we have also met friends, been able to participate in amazing events, and found a spirit of camaraderie we found nowhere else. The JCC is not just an amazing facility, it is a community and a home.
