Walk into our JCC Early Learning Center (ELC) on the Brookline/Brighton line, and you will see the children playing, moving and having fun. It’s hard not to feel their joy. From toddlers to preschoolers, ELC kids are active and engaged learners!

When I’m at work, it’s reassuring that my son is learning in such a warm and welcoming school.

Child-Centered Learning with a Jewish Foundation

Our educational approach begins with the belief that children are curious, contributing participants in the world. This child-centered philosophy aligns with our rich Jewish culture, traditions and values.

The Center’s modern facility features sunlit classrooms and a spacious on-site playground. Swim lessons and enrichment classes are among the wide range of activities your child will enjoy.

Our diverse school community welcomes families of all faiths, and we are experienced working with bilingual children. Become part of our vibrant ELC community!
