The beautiful nursery school wing of Temple Israel Center (TIC) is now home to the JCC Mid-Westchester (JCCMW) Nursery School in White Plains. We are very excited about the expansion of the JCCMW’s Nursery School and welcome them to TIC! This additional site will follow JCCMW’s curriculum with a focus on school readiness, as well as Jewish values and traditions.
During their nursery school years, children learn the basics of language, physical skills, and social interactions. At the JCCMW Nursery School, our trained, caring staff helps your child achieve healthy physical, social, and cognitive growth. We help your child further develop self-awareness, confidence, and a sense of security.
For the 2023-2024 school year, we have programs for twos, threes, and fives. Our fives class is a kindergarten bridge program. This class is for children who are eligible to enter kindergarten, but would benefit from an additional year of preschool. We also offer early and after care.
Currently, the JCCMW Nursery School is offering programs for toddlers ages 6-24 months old. Please join for a complimentary trial class!
We created the Small Steps (12-18 months) and Smaller Steps (6-12 months) programs to meet the needs of the youngest members of our community. They are a great way to meet other local toddlers and caregivers. The programs are designed to promote socialization and play, which are key components of development. They include music, storytime, playtime, and sensory-related experiences such as art, while enhancing social awareness and language development. Smaller Steps meets Thursdays 9:30-10:30 am; Small Steps meets Fridays 9:30-10:30 am and will include a Shabbat component. Classes meet for ten weeks.
