Child-Centered Learning with a Jewish Foundation

Our Center is dedicated to providing children and their families with a rich and nurturing learning environment filled with Jewish values and traditions.

We have the advantage of being located at the JCC Leventhal-Sidman Center, so ELC kids spend lots of time playing and learning outdoors on our beautiful campus. Our new, state-of-the-art playscape incorporates all the wonder of the natural landscape.

As part of the JCC community, ELC families have access to a wide range of activities. These include swim lessons and enrichment classes for children, as well as fitness, arts and cultural opportunities for the entire family. At the JCC, children and parents find opportunities for life-long learning and friendships. Become part of our vibrant ELC community!
