We are a progressive, play-based early childhood program serving families with children ages two through five.  Our community fosters sharing, understanding, and respect while focusing on the social, emotional, cognitive and physical development of each child.  We celebrate each child’s unique gifts and are dedicated to teaching children to become confident learners, passionate explorers, and discerning risk-takers.

Our program runs on Monday, Wednesday and Friday with children here from 9:15am-2:45pm. We have 2 age groups for our classes. Our littles ones must be 2 by Oct 1st and our older bunch are our 3’s and Pre-K children combined.  Both of our age groups are taught by teachers with fantastic educational and experiential backgrounds with each holding a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education and years of teaching in unique programs throughout NJ and NYC. Additionally, we will offer our very popular Toddler and My Grown-up on Tuesdays from 10:00am-11:30am. We have a weekly music program as well as cooking, science, and nature investigations. Weekly Shabbat Celebrations with Rabbi Malinger and Judaic learning is interwoven into all that we do. We encourage you to check out all that our ELC offers to the young families in our community.
