Early Childhood

A high-quality preschool experience benefits children throughout their lives! Send your children to Learn & Play at the J – the North Shore’s most enriching Early Childhood Program. Enrollment is OPEN!


Give your children the best!  The JCC has been named Marblehead’s BEST Preschool by the Readers Choice Awards.  Come experience all our Early Childhood program has to offer your child – and your family. Call for a tour today at 781-476-9882.

The JCC Early Childhood Program welcomes children ages two months to six  years old. Our developmentally-appropriate curriculum is designed to encourage social, emotional and physical growth. We support and promote positive feelings about school and instill life-long patterns that reinforce the joys of learning and discovery.

We offer environments that are caring and encourage social interaction. Children are introduced to language arts, science, math, social studies, music and creative movement. Each classroom is arranged in a series of learning centers that foster creativity and independence.

The JCC’s Early Childhood Program has welcomed generations of children, building trusting relationships that support each child’s individuality, creativity and potential. We are known for our experienced teachers, small class sizes, research-driven curriculum, enriching specialties and beautiful facilities.

We believe…

1) in respecting children as individuals.
2) that friendship and cooperative play enhance a learning environment.
3) that the foundation of learning is self-esteem and trust in others.
4) that you, as parents, are your child’s first and more important teachers.

Call for a tour today! We look forward to meeting you and your children.
