Wolk Children's Center

Wonder, Play, Create, Learn

The JCC Wolk Children’s Center is the only Early Childhood community that instills the skills of collaboration, community, critical thinking, and creativity by creating a safe and nurturing environment that understands children are constructivist learners and learn by play and social interaction with their friends. Qualified staff and ongoing professional development coupled with our key elements of early education and Jewish values, help us prepare children and families for the world we live in.

We give kids what they need to be remarkable.

Our Programs + Curriculum

We follow the Creative Curriculum which provides a research-based and field proven approach to learning for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. Our curriculum is aligned with the New York State Early Learning Standards which helps us make sure your little one is ready for kindergarten when the time comes. Alongside academic learning, your child will also have robust experiences that promote social-emotional intelligence, physical development, and cognitive skills.

8 Weeks to Kindergarten

Each day at the Center is filled with learning opportunities to encourage your child’s curiosity, foster social skills, and stimulate key interest centers — including creative art, language and literacy, sensory and motor, and cognitive development.

Talk to us about how we can prepare your child with the skills they’ll need to be successful and happy.
