Early Childhood Center

Mandel JCC’s Early Childhood Center offers year-round programs for children ages 8 weeks old through Pre-Kindergarten. For more than 50 years, we have been committed to offering an exceptional child care and preschool curriculum and experience, as evident by our 5-Star Step-Up-To Quality designation from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services tiered quality ratings and improvements system.

Young Family Programing

Join The J for interactive programs that are perfect for parents, grandparents and caregivers of young children. Our hands-on events and classes spark interest, engage minds and explore Jewish traditions, culture and values. Enroll in swim lessons or get active at our seasonal family gym times.

Parenting Programs and Support

There’s no better way to build community and feel supported in your parenting journey than connecting with others. The J’s early childhood team brings professionals together with families and caregivers for programs such as J-Baby Group for those with new babies and Village Voices parent discussion group. 

We Believe Early childhood education is more than just preparing children for future success in school.

It is about honoring the process of childhood, holding sacred space for it and supporting every child in realizing their potential.
