Thank you for your interest in the Edlavitch DCJCC Preschool! 

Our dynamic, NAEYC-accredited early childhood program is filled with developmentally appropriate activities led by our energetic staff. We focus on a Reggio Emilia-inspired curriculum and believe children learn best when they are active participants in the formation of their own ideas and understanding of the world.
