JCC Under Construction
Dear Parents/ Guardians, January 25, 2022
For over 50 years, the JCC and the JCC Preschool have been a place for many families in our Corpus Christi Community.
The JCC has been known for offering high quality early childhood education, and I’m therefore pleased to announce that we are going to expand our school This expansion to the JCC preschool will add another 4 classrooms and upgrade the existing ones, enabling us to educate even more children from our community.
This construction project will start this upcoming summer 2022 and it will take approximately one entire school year and one summer (2023) to be finished.
Our school/summer program will be able to operate normally while the large playground is under construction. The construction side will be completely blocked off from our school and students/parents will not be able to come near this area. Our oldest students will temporarily move to the smaller playground/auditorium room for their recess.
Throughout this project we will keep you all informed with the latest updates. And during our parent orientation night (August 2022)
From Our Preschool Director
We welcome you to our preschool and campus. We provide a preschool and kindergarten program dedicated to developing self-esteem, confidence and social skills in 15 months through 5 year of age, while delivering an exemplary educational curriculum which focuses on the whole child.
Your child will participate in an accelerated curriculum along with an opportunity for Library, Computers, Spanish, L’Dor V’Dor and Shabbat Fridays.
Our AM/PM Care, Preschool, Kindergarten and Summer Enrichment programs provide safe fun-filled activities for families who desire stimulating, educational and entertaining opportunities for their children.
If you have any questions or would like to tour our JCC Preschool, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
JCC Preschool Director
Vision AND values
The JCC School is one in which children love to learn, staff is open to professional growth and parents are actively involved. With a variety of experiences and diverse backgrounds, we offer a very unique perspective of community to our early learners. Parents and teachers model the very behavior they teach: cooperation, courtesy, and respect. Communication is open, honest and kind where all participants are working to be their best.
Our students are encouraged to be proud of their surroundings and take good care of them. We see children who are continually learning and working happily at their academic endeavors. We see a place where young children flourish, succeed and enjoy every day at the JCC.
In accomplishing our goals, we:
- Value each child’s language, intellectual, social, emotional, physical, and creative development;
- Value the dignity of each child, parent, and staff member;
- Are guided by respect for self, for others, and for the environment;
- Affirm the joy of doing one’s best;
- Enable the success of each person by providing a professional, caring and nurturing school;
- Provide an environment in which children develop their talents in a cooperative atmosphere;
- Value communication that is open, honest and kind.
ABOUT OUR PROGRAMS
To provide a preschool program dedicated to developing self-esteem, confidence and social skills in toddlers, 2, 3, 4 and 5 year-olds while delivering a high quality early learning educational curriculum which focuses on the development of the whole child. Our Before School and After School Programs provide a safe and nurturing environment with organized, well-planned activities on a daily basis for children whose families desire stimulating, educational, and entertaining opportunities for their children during their extended day at the JCC.
Toddler through Preschool
A 5-hour preschool program is available for children from ages 15 months until they enter kindergarten which offers students numerous activities to learn letters, phonics, numbers, colors, shapes, science, social studies, cooperation and self-help skills while discovering the world around them. Throughout the year, the curriculum revolves around the central themes with continuous early learning opportunities with both a teacher and child self-directed approach during various times of the day.
A 5 ¼ hour kinder program expands their cognitive and intellectual growth, computer skills, listening skills, fine and large motor skills, social and emotional growth. This is an accelerated kindergarten program where students learn a complete range of information in all critical areas. With our low student-teacher ratio, our children have a tremendous opportunity for success. Our complete curriculum includes reading, writing, math, science, social studies, geography and computer skills and is presented in a highly skillful manner which fully prepares each student with an excellent foundation for first grade.
Before and After School Programs
These programs offer a safe and professional environment designed to enhance social skills and provide academic support. Children experience a wide array of activities ranging from weekly arts and crafts projects, indoor and outdoor games and fun and monthly themes that promote social interaction and school involvement. The Before School and After School Programs are available on all school days and are available only to JCC School students.
