The Work of Children is Play

At JCC MetroWest, we want our children to develop a strong definition of self. Learning to be proactive and resolve differences are goals for all of our children. We encourage kind, caring behaviors. We place a great value on friendship.

The work of children is play-that is how they learn about the world. Children participate in regular activities that challenge their physical skills. Our secure children's wing includes a dedicated Early Childhood drop-off and pick-up area, large indoor play space, and a a children's library. Swim instruction is integrated into the day for our 4 and 5 year olds.

At the same time our children learn about themselves and the world, they learn to reach out and to care for others. Through our many options, you can build a program schedule to meet your child's needs.
