Welcome Home to the JCP Early Childhood Center!

The JCP Early Childhood Center is a school at the heart of an innovative downtown community. Our programs emphasize joyful Jewish experiences and values, and a connection to community, in a safe and fun learning environment.

Discovering and respecting children’s natural ways of understanding the world and scaffolding them as they grow, JCP Early Childhood Center values each child’s unique qualities while instilling a lifelong appreciation for community. Children benefit from flexibility within structure as they explore and discover while feeling the security of appropriate boundaries. We work hand in hand with parents to form partnerships of trust and to set appropriate goals for children.

Limited availability for the 2018-2019 school year.

Admissions season for the 2019-2020 school year begins on Tuesday, September 4 at 9 AM.

For more information, please contact Matti Bowen at mbowen@jcpdowntown.org or 212-334-3522. Sign up for JCP emails to receive an invitation to sign up for a tour and information session.
