Kaplen JCC on the Palisades Nursery School Holds Open Houses

The Leonard and Syril Rubin Nursery School at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades features a warm, child-centered environment rooted in Jewish tradition, where children can become confident, responsible and successful learners. To showcase all it offers, the school is holding two more open houses, on December 9 and January 13, both from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Prospective families will be able to meet the director, learn about the school and its curriculum, ask questions, tour the facilities and spend time in the classrooms.

“I am looking forward to meeting new families and showcasing all our school has to offer,” says Early Childhood Director Devin Zukofsky. “Our goal is to introduce our children to new interests in a warm, fun and caring environment, where they can gain a strong sense of self and accomplishment.”

The school provides innovative programming that allows children to explore and understand new concepts in a fun, dynamic way. The goal is to enrich each child’s world through exposure to language arts, science, reading and math readiness, music, art, Judaic programming, physical education and swimming. Nurturing social interaction is an integral part of all programs.

The curriculum includes cognitive learning and enrichment; fine and gross motor skills; reading readiness skills; sensory experiences; Judaic programming; art, music, dramatic play and cooking; gym and swimming; and preparation for Kindergarten and more. It is a state-licensed, accredited program for 12-month-old to 5-year-old children and offers half, three-quarter and full-day sessions with extended day options for three or five days a week according to age. Our experienced, professional staff works closely with each child to promote his or her social, emotional and intellectual development.

Classes meet in attractive, modern, sunny, well-equipped classrooms and students have access to other JCC facilities, including two gyms with professional athletics coaches; junior swimming pools with experienced aquatic staff; a teaching kitchen; beautiful playgrounds & cheery playroom; a lending library; and fun and enriching after-school programs offered through the JCC’s School-Age, Athletic and Aquatics Departments, School of Dance, School of Theatrical Arts and the JCC Thurnauer School of Music.

JCC membership is required to enroll in the school. Limited scholarships are available. Applications may be obtained at the Nursery School office. The JCC makes every effort to ensure that children are not denied enrollment due to the inability of the family to pay the full fee.
