Parent Testimonials

pre-school-logoThe JCC has been part of our family life for the past 6 years. Our children have many happy memories of summers in Camp Ruach and both have gone through the entire Blaustein Early Childhood Center program.

We couldn't be happier with the quality of care and education that they have received. We believe our children have made lifelong friends. The staff in the Blaustein Early Childhood Center is very attentive and caring about parents’ concerns. Our kids enjoy the range of extra curriculum activities, from yoga to swimming. We intend to keep our membership in JCC even after our children graduate from the program and hope to have many more wonderful memories.

Just over three years ago, we began our pre-school search as we were getting ready to have our second child. We researched countless pre-schools and daycare programs in several local towns and we immediately decided on the JCC when we visited for the first time. When you know, you know! Our children are safe, nurtured, respected and well cared for. They are truly part of a family that cares about them and really knows them. The correspondence is fantastic, parent involvement is high and the activities that they participate in; yoga, swimming, art, music, gardening and baking are not found at other schools as part of their regular curriculum. We are beyond happy with the early childhood program the JCC offers.

The JCC ECC has been one of the best decisions we have made for our son, Logan. Academically, he is exposed to new material on a daily basis while previously introduced topics are continually reinforced. He has opportunities to interact socially while engaging in a variety of activities, and looks forward to seeing his friends every day. The staff and administration is responsive, caring, and consistent in their approach. And, most importantly, Logan feels safe, encouraged and loved.

The JCC is hands down the best preschool in the area, and we are proud to see our three boys thrive there year after year. As full time working parents, we take comfort in knowing that our boys are safe, secure and happy, as well as in an environment that promotes intellectual and social growth. It is evident each morning that they are excited to go to school, and when we pick them up each evening, it is clear that they had a great, eventful day. We always look forward to the new art project, hearing the songs from Shabbat or seeing the latest yoga moves – where else would your toddler come home and perform a “downward dog”?!

It means everything to know that my children are in a safe and positive learning environment. The Blaustein Early Childhood Center is that and more. All three of my children have attended the preschool and I firmly believe that the decision we made five years ago to enroll my son was the best one we could have made. The JCC came highly recommended to us by several individuals in the community and we have never looked back. The teachers are all warm, positive role models and truly care about each child as an individual. The children are involved in all kinds of activities from swimming to cooking - and there are more added every year. The school offers early care and late stay, which as a working mom has been a real necessity for my family. The school is very supportive and flexible with last minute requests for late stay, for which I am truly grateful. The friendships that my children and I have made are special. There is an open, inclusive feeling that is not found everywhere. I feel confident that the JCC has provided my children with a great foundation.
