I am so thrilled that our family has found the JCC because I had visited no less than 6 daycares before deciding on the JCC. Our child has been attending the JCC infant program since he was 5 months old. The schools ratio of infant to teacher 4 to 1 which is below the state requirement of 5 to 1. The facility is clean and the teachers are friendly and communicate with me whenever something is going out with our baby. Also what I like about the school is they offer a lot of enrichment classes. Right now I am taking our son to the Music and Me class, which is $5 each time but it allows me to spend quality time with my son. Also from August to June each year the center offers parents night out which is one Saturday from 6 to 11pm you can drop off your child for a fee and the school watches them. It is a great program because my son is already familiar with the environment so he would feel at ease with going during the evening. The JCC is structured differently than other daycares, it is more of a school which I am very impressed by because they stress in teaching and good habits than a daycare where someone is just watching my son. Also each month the cost of care is based on how many hours I scheduled. If our family is planning to be away or have grandparents visiting, I am able to adjust my hours so that we can pay less than a full months attendance.
Our son has been attending East Valley Jewish Community Center for just over two years (since he was 6 months old) and my husband and I couldnt be happier! We picked the JCC primarily because they are accredited with the national accrediting body called NAEYC and are also a four star center with Quality First, both of which gave us assurances as to the quality of learning and care. We have stayed because not only has the JCC been such a rich learning environment but the teachers and leaders truly care about their work and the children. Our little guy loves going to school here and has truly learned so much! Their staff to child ratios are also incredible - especially in the infant room where as a parent, you want low ratios. Every day I know he is in a safe environment. I highly recommend the JCC to any parent considering a child care setting.
The EVJCC is an excellent pre-school for our 2 children. We know that everyday they are learning and having fun at the same time. It is also nice that even since our daughter was an infant, we were able to take our children to the same place. The teacher to student ratio is great! We love all of the teachers and staff at the JCC as they show so much care for our kiddos. Our kids also go to the Js summer camp which we love. They get to enjoy going on field trips to great places around the valley and it works perfectly with our work schedules. The extracurricular offerings are plentiful as well giving our children a wide range of new activities to try while at school. We would recommend the J to anyone looking for quality care and education for their infant babies to preschoolers!
If your wanting to put on an event religious or otherwise, this a Very difficult place to deal with. My friends and I have tried to reach the people in charge and seem to be forgotten and or just plain lost. We used to think that business is very important and needed. Dont bother trying to book an event here they will just give you the run around.
My husband and I chose the JCC for childcare when our son was a baby...8 years ago...and we have been so grateful to have this community of talented people to help us raise our kids! We love all the services they provide (daycare, preschool, dance classes, summer/school break camps, field trips, etc.) in a safe and secure environment.
Im not sure its still open. Just drove by, but by the looks of it, used to be a Jewish community Center!
Very very bad experience with the childcare here. Unsafe.
