Welcome To Prosserman JCC Daycare and Preschool

At the Prosserman JCC Daycare and Preschool, we believe it’s essential for children to feel like they’re part of a healthy and vibrant community. That’s why, despite the many challenges and obstacles this past year has presented, our programs have been running safely since reopening in July 2020. We remain committed to providing our students with a safe and inviting learning environment to help them play, learn, laugh and grow together.

Sheva Learning Framework Sheva Learning Framework

Sheva Learning Framework

Seven principles guide our Sheva Program: children as constructivist learners, early childhood directors as visionaries, early childhood educators as professionals, families as engaged partners, environments as inspiration for inquiry, discover CATCH as Sh'mirat Haguf (taking care of our body) and Israel as a source and resource.

Practicing Judaism

Starting at an early age, we ensure that the children begin to engage with their Jewish identity by celebrating holidays and traditions through songs, crafts, dancing, storytelling and enjoying traditional holiday foods. Celebrating Jewish traditions and values enriches the Jewish experience for each child. A favourite experience of the children is baking fresh challah and participating in our Shabbat celebrations.

Our Educators

Each teacher has been carefully selected and oriented to our school’s values, philosophy, and community to provide the finest early childhood education possible. They view themselves as partners in your child’s development and your family’s growth. Teachers work collaboratively to create environments and experiences that spark wonder and creativity, build confidence and skills, allow children to explore materials, and encourage a questioning mind.
