JCC Brooklyn’s Infant-Toddler Program focuses on children’s development and is designed based on their primary needs between 12 months and 24 months of age. This is the age when emotional, physical, cognitive, social and verbal skills are growing at an exceptional rate. Infants and toddlers in this stage learn through exploring the world around them. Our play-based, emergent curriculum concentrates on identifying and developing each child’s individual needs and interests while supporting their physical and social-emotional development.
The infant-toddler program at JCC Brooklyn offers:
- Full and Half-Day Programs (including early bird and extended stay)
- Progressive, play-based approach
- Fully licensed and experienced staff
- Jewish cultural framework
- Music, art, and movement integrated into daily schedule
- Brand-new, child-centered facilities
- Daily snacks
- Emergent Curriculum
- Daily walks and playground visits
We use special buggies to transport our classes to nearby playgrounds where the children engage in cooperative games and free play. We take advantage of the beauty of our neighborhood by going on nature walks, having fun at the playground, enjoying being outside and learning about the many plants, birds and animals that share our world with us.
Since children learn and evolve at what seems like lightning speed, we make sure to document learning each day so that you can see the progress your child is making firsthand. We take many photos during the day so that you can glimpse the fun that we are having learning, playing, and exploring.
