Welcoming all families, with an emphasis on sharing Jewish culture and traditions, the JCC offers child care and education in Reggio inspired environments for two hundred children ages 18 months to grade 7. Our outdoor learning centre incorporates indigenous planting from BC and Israel as well as a children’s garden, offering endless play possibilities for inquiry based learning. Our indoor classrooms are filled with open-ended materials to spark investigation and discovery. Using the BC Early Learning Framework and Sheva, the Jewish Early Learning Framework from the JCC’s of North America as our guides, we continue to be inspired by research from the schools in Reggio Emilia. We believe that children’s capacity for kindness and compassion, creativity and critical thinking skills are the foundation of our future.
