Dix Hills Jewish Center's Early Childhood Academy offers an exclusive program of early childhood education. As an individualized program, it focuses on each child's developmental needs and promotes a positive secure and accepting environment, enabling each child to grow with a sense of joy and wonderment. We offer a program that is play-based and academic at the same time, offering unique opporunities for learning through play.
Individuality, creativity and communication are the keys to our educational endeavor. Children are encouraged to grow at their own pace in a stress-free, stimulating environment. Classrooms are designed with a variety of learning centers, each with a hierarchy of materials. These areas include fine motor and sensorial, language, math and imaginitive play as well as a quiet corner and an art area. While providing them a safe and nuturing environment we are also commited to promoting Kindergarten readiness during the years they spend in our programs.
The Early Childhood Academy promotes in our children a positive self-image and self-confidence. Children learn to be responsible for their actions and for themselves in addition to learning the social skills that teach care and consideration towards their peers.
This is a place where your child is recognized and cared for both as an individual as well as part of our Dix Hills Jewish Center family. We've had many successful years of innovative, enriching growth fueled by a team of experienced staff members along with parental input.
