The ECLC is more than just childcare – it truly is a learning center. From the day your child first enters the building they are welcomed into a family of loving educators who work hard to meet your child’s needs. Every staff and teacher at the JCC loves what they do, and it is clear every day as they instill Jewish values as well as social and emotional growth into each and every child. When you send your child to the JCC ECLC you aren’t just a member of an institution, you’re a member of a community.
The JCC ECLC has been our second family since 2017. It’s not easy leaving your children in the care of others but when you know they are safe, happy, and thriving it makes it easier . The teachers and staff go above and beyond for our children , we couldn’t imagine sending them anywhere else.
When we enrolled our daughter into the ECLC, it was the first time we had put her well-being in the hands of anyone other than close family. To say that we were nervous would be the understatement of the year. When we picked her up after that first day, we were shocked that she was disappointed that she had to leave, and her enthusiasm for being there has only increased throughout the year! In that time, her social skills, speech, and positive behaviors have exploded beyond our expectations. We directly attribute this to the incredible staff at the ECLC who put forth so much effort into creating a healthy and safe learning environment for all the children put under their charge. Equally wonderful is the communication between parents and staff. We have a direct line of communication to her teachers at all times, and administrative staff give frequent updates to the goings ons at the ECLC. We feel truly blessed to have a place like the ECLC.
The preschool is AMAZING. My Daughter literally begs to go to school. Mrs Welch is a total sweetheart. They also offer “enrichment classes”, yoga, swimming, dance, basketball. They eat three times a day, go outside to the playground everyday, have the best updated fun toys/ I’m always getting some Cool craft Holme. Mrs. Judy is an absolute angel! She makes my day everyday. The sweetest lady you will ever talk to. The registrar is also a joy to talk to and genuinely a sweetheart. I love it love it love it. This is the preschool moms dream about taking kids to. Your babies are in very good hands and you can feel safe while you work that they are having a blast!!!!
If you are looking for a warm, inviting, and loving childcare center for your little one, then run, don’t walk, to tour the ECLC. The teachers and staff at the amazing ECLC have been family for nine years now and I cannot imagine a more special place to send them. When my drop my children off in the morning I know that they will learn, and have fun, and be loved.
The ECLC has been a wonderful place for our children to learn and grow. Our children have gained the tools to think more critically and embrace their emotions. We’re truly grateful for everything the teachers and support staff do to prioritize our girls. Starting a new program in the midst of a pandemic was challenging, but we’ve never felt more safe.
As an anxious new mom in her first daycare experience (during a pandemic!), the JCC has been such a blessing to our family. From initial discussions, to getting us prepared, to a seamless first week and so far over 8 months of fun, love, learning and safe care for our little one, we are so pleased with everyone at the J! Our little man loves going in every day and we hope to be there for many more years!
All four of our children started in the infant room at the JCC. And we consider each and every one of their teachers to be our co-parent. Our kids have learned about respect, patience and compassion through the examples of their wonderful educators. We are eternally grateful for the love you have given and the confidence you have bestowed on our children.
My wife and I interviewed multiple centers across the Winter Park / Orlando area-they varied in affiliation and curriculums; and we knew the JCC was the place for our child as soon as we took our initial tour. There is a sense of family, community, and safety that allowed us to rest easy knowing that our lil’ guy was in great hands of caring educators with tremendous tenure; so much so that we registered our next child without a second thought. The JCC provides an environment that allows for growth, development, and fun! We couldn’t be happier.
The ECLC has not only provided a wonderful environment for my son to learn and grow. It’s also where he’s met his lifelong friends and where we as new parents have met our best friends
The ECLC is an interactive learning environment, Judaically and secularly, where the classroom is organized around the children being actively engaged. The children are immerse into a community that has been around for several generations, which inculcate Jewish values and traditions, opportunities to be creative, strengthening their identities, and surrounded by teachers that love/care for every student. The ECLC in Orlando is home for our children to grow and create foundational values; as well as, a place that unites families, teaches Tikun Olam (healing the world) with a concept of treating everyone equally, and bringing joy to our community.
We love the JCC ECLC! The teachers and staff made us feel welcome and safe from the very beginning when we toured the campus and continue to do so. The curriculum encourages and challenges the children. There are flexible hours so you can choose what fits your family’s schedule. Extracurricular activities offered on campus make it so convenient for you and your child. We feel so lucky to be a part of the ECLC family!
