KinderPlace at the JCC is one of the most respected and acclaimed full-day Early Learning Center (ELC) programs in Fairfield County. We have two programs for children: ages 12 months to 32 months, and 32 months to 5 years. Fully licensed by the State of Connecticut, KinderPlace recognizes the distinctive needs of working parents and their families. Our program meets these needs by providing a warm and supportive environment with the very best of individualized care. All JCC Early Childhood programs include year-round curricula that teach children Jewish stories, songs and celebrations. The wonderful smells of Jewish holiday cooking, songs of Shabbat, and the symbols and images of Jewish life fill the air. A strong emphasis is put on weaving Jewish values of friendship, respect and tzedakah (charity) into the daily life of each age group. JCC membership is required. KinderPlace is driven by the Jewish values of kindness, respect, compassion, confidence and responsibility, and we warmly welcome children of all faiths, ethnicity and backgrounds.
