(Courtesy of Jewish Federation of GMW) GMW Right Start provides a $1,000 gift voucher toward the cost of tuition for families enrolling their children during the academic year in a program for Jewish 2-year-olds for the first time.

A child’s early years are the most formative. What a child experiences before age 5 becomes the foundation for thought patterns, value structures and ways of viewing the world into adulthood. Jewish early childhood centers partner with families to ensure each child’s earliest years are filled with engaging play, exciting discoveries, nurturing teachers, laughter and friendship. Through the richness of traditions, rituals and stories, Jewish early childhood centers help families raise children who have a sense of wonderment and responsibility for the world around them.

“As a parent of two young daughters, I experience the magic of Jewish early childhood education on a daily basis, and I’m excited for the opportunity to support families as they begin their journey in the Jewish community,” said Emily Fox, director of Jewish educational initiatives at Greater MetroWest NJ. “Our Jewish early childhood centers not only provide children with high-quality, child-centered education, but they are also where families first meet their lifelong friends and start to get involved in meaningful ways.”

Jewish early childhood centers aren’t just about the children. Through each child’s experience, the whole family is engaged. They are immersed in the richness and diversity of Jewish life. They are welcomed and supported, and the friendships created can grow for years beyond!
