School for the Early Years (Ages 2-5)

Overview

The JCC School for the Early Years provides children ages 2-5 years with an environment rich in possibilities for child-initiated, child-directed, teacher-supported learning through active exploration and play. Our School for the Early Years (SFEY) offers socialization and education for your preschooler in the morning, while our Lunch and Learn for 3-6 year olds provides afternoon fun and enrichment.

The school program runs from the end of August until the first week in June. The school doors open at 8:50 AM and school starts at 9:00 AM with staggered dismissals to alleviate congestion in the School Commons area at pick up time.  
2's and 3's dismiss at 11:15
3's and 4's at 11:25
4's and 5's at 11:30.

Tuition
Annual tuition is broken down into monthly payments and varies, based on numbers of days of attendance:
  • Two days (Tuesday/Thursday): Member rate is $275 and Non-Member is $354.
  • Three days (Monday/Wednesday/Friday): Member rate is $319 and Non-Member is $398.
  • Five days Monday through Friday: Member rate $417 and Non-Member $496.
(Please note that the 4's and 5's program does not offer a two or three day option.)

Extended school hours are available with lunch and snacks from 11:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.. The School for the Early Years runs the summer Discovery Camp from June through mid-August for children ages three through six years.
