Early Childhood Education

At the Osher Marin JCC, dedicated early childhood educators are continually enhancing our rich program of excellence inspired by Jewish tradition and values, strengthened by active parent involvement. We build trusting relationships that support each child’s individuality, creativity, and potential. Our ECE program provides a sacred place of intentionality where wonder and curiosity fill the environment; teachers and children collaborate to explore big ideas and possibilities. In parallel, the ECE creates opportunities for parents and teachers to grow and learn about child development, parenting, and Jewish life. Being a part of a diverse community, we create connections that enrich our everyday living and learning.
