Welcome to the J’s
Early Childhood Center


Building a Nurturing Environment

JLA Preschool educators plan and implement meaningful experiences to ensure that children feel loved, safe, and empowered to learn new things, become increasingly independent, display social-emotional competence, and build healthy and positive relationships.

Creating a Truly Special Learning Experience

JLA Preschool’s unique “Mensch Curriculum” provides a teaching framework and a spirit to the school. A mensch is a person who exudes integrity and honor; a good person – a kind person – a leader. The mensch acronym: Mindful, Equitable, Nourished, Socially responsive, Confident, and Happy – guides the classroom experience and learning goals.

ערבות | AREYVUT

We believe in building strong bonds and supporting one another, creating a sense of togetherness and unity.


סקרנות | SAKRANUT

We encourage a thirst for knowledge, empowering students to explore, question, and discover.


חסד | CHESED

Kindness and compassion are at the core of our values, cultivating a warm and caring environment.


דין | DIN

We strive for fairness and equality, teaching the importance of upholding moral principles and acting with integrity.


Unique enrichment opportunities make learning a fun and exciting experience by encouraging new discoveries each day! JLA Preschool classes participate in upbeat music classes and regular movement or “kids’ gym” style activities. Additional enrichment options for our students can include hip-hop, ballet, karate, yoga, and soccer.


Once a week, our oldest classes enjoy swimming, adding a change of classroom scenery and physical activity to their day. Together with their teachers, children enjoy swimming in our aquatic center while being supervised by certified lifeguards both inside and outside the pool.
