Our fours program also emphasizes pre-reading and writing skills. Using an approach inspired by Handwriting Without Tears, children engage in activities that help strengthen the muscles in their hands, preparing them to grip a pencil and for emerging letter formation.
Children enjoy special enrichment activities throughout the week, led by experts from other JCC departments. Sample activities include:
- Creative Movement
- Red Cross Certified Swimming
- Skills and Thrills Occupational Therapy Activities
Jewish values, Shabbat, and Jewish holidays are celebrated in a way that makes all feel welcome and included.
Families have the option of enrolling in a variety of extracurricular enrichment classes outside of their tuition, from swimming to sports to dance, and we will escort them to and from these classes!
