ECE Financial Assistance

The Katz JCC Sari Isdaner Early Childhood Center is pleased to offer a limited amount of need-based financial assistance to families who qualify. Choosing the right Preschool for your child is a very important decision. We are committed to making sure that Preschool is affordable to all families. Financial assistance is available to those who qualify through a very generous grant from the Saltzman Foundation, which is dispensed though the Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey.



How Our Process Works

  • You must register your child for the 2023-2024 school year before applying for financial assistance and pay the required deposit. The deposit is fully refundable, should you decide not to enroll if assistance is not rewarded.
  • Applications are rolling. We recommend that you apply as soon as possible. The Financial Assistance Committee will begin reviewing applications as of February 2023.
  • You must apply annually for financial assistance.
  • The financial assistance process is administered by the JCC bookkeeping office. Please allow three weeks for processing once you are notified from FACTS that your application is complete.
  • All details regarding your application are kept confidential.
  • Please note that assistance ranges from 5% to 50%, based on financial need.
