Early childhood education is so much more than playtime for young children. Early Childhood Centers are places where children begin to develop who they are in relation to others; they are places where whole families grow, learn and build community; they start a trajectory for the child and the family that takes them into new areas of physical, cognitive, social and emotional development and connection.
BJE works with 65 Jewish Early Childhood Centers and countless Parent & Me programs across greater Los Angeles. BJE’s ever-evolving services include:
Early childhood education is, for many families, the beginning of their child's Jewish education. BJE works to ensure that the early childhood educational experience is of high quality and encourages families to continue their children’s Jewish educational journeys. BJE works with families to help them find the right early childhood experience for their child and works with Early Childhood Centers and Parent & Me programs directly to ensure that that experience is the best that it can be.
