What we love about Preschool at The J!
Jay and Jill Strainic with their daughter Kate and son Jacob
"We were a part of this amazing family for four school years. We tried other preschool and camp options in the past, but nothing compares to the comprehensive experience provided at The J. This amazing preschool goes beyond academics and fosters a love of art, music, yoga, swimming, gardening, and best of all, an emphasis on becoming a loving, caring person. Our children have learned tolerance, inquisitiveness, and self-control along with their ABCs. Our entire family has formed lifelong friendships and benefited from the programs offered by the preschool, which include speakers for parents, family activities, and social events. The J just feels like home to us." - Jill Strainic
"We had incredibly caring, nurturing teachers who have encouraged Max, taught him both academic and life lessons, and developed long lasting relationships not only with him, but with our entire family. I have no doubt in my mind that the Mandel JCC prepared him for kindergarten."- Sarah Weiss
“The teachers are so used to these developmental stages and are able to reassure parents that the kids are on track,” Ilyssa said. “It makes our lives so much easier. Josh and I can go to work without worrying about our children. We know they are learning and being taken care of in a wonderful, nurturing setting all day long.”
