Transitional Kindergarten

Preschool Families

“The JCC Preschool’s well-rounded program allowed my son to learn and experience art, music, sports, swimming, Shabbat, and much more in a way that was engaging and fun. He’s now ready for kindergarten, and I credit all of his teachers for each playing an important role in his educational, social, and emotional well-being.”

For children who have completed a program for 4-year-olds, and would benefit from an additional year before entering Kindergarten. Our Transitional Kindergarten program prepares children for elementary school in a small, nurturing environment with skillful, careful teachers. Our TK program creates a dynamic classroom experience that respects children’s ideas and helps them grow socially and intellectually. Literacy, math, social studies, and science are integrated through throughout the day, and learning opportunities happen everywhere, from the classroom to the playground.

Classes meet daily from 9:15 a.m. to 2:45 p.m.

Aftercare is available through the JCCGW Youth Department. For information please contact Rebecca Boots at

Camp JCC offers engaging programs for our kindegarteners throughout the summer.
