The Jewish Community Center (JCC) in WNY has been a staple in the WNY community for many years, but do you really know about all that they offer?  They are a community for fitness, family and fun!  The JCC has programming for adults as well as many wonderful things for children of all ages!

Pre-School at the JCC

The JCC has 2 NAEYC accredited preschools.   Their curriculum promotes social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth through a multi-sensory approach to teaching. They provide “hands-on” learning experiences that help children become confident, independent and respectful members of their classroom community. Children learn, play and develop “life” skills in a safe, nurturing environment where they build the self-confidence and the skills necessary to prepare them for kindergarten!

Registrations are now being accepted for WNY’s Premier NAEYC accredited Preschool!
