About Early Childhood

About The Sari Isdaner Early Childhood Center

Sari Isdaner Early Childhood Center at the Katz JCCThe Sari Isdaner Early Childhood Center, located at the Katz JCC in Cherry Hill, is an award winning and leading provider of early childhood education in South Jersey for over 50 years. We offer full day infant/toddler care, nursery school and preschool, full day certified Kindergarten, pre-K and transitional Kindergarten for ages 6 weeks through 6 years. Our flexible morning, school day, and full day programs are designed to accommodate our families.

Our state licensed and accredited school is designed to encourage the development of your child’s inner resources: curiosity, creativity, imagination, independence, a love of learning and self-esteem. Using by Teaching Strategies allows children to develop cognitively, academically, socially and emotionally.

Our dedicated and caring staff, along with our certified head pre-school teachers and degreed head infant and toddler teachers, all have knowledge and experience in early childhood education. Their credentials include a mix of degrees, certifications and education in the field plus years of experience and longevity within our community.  All teachers take part in ongoing professional development and continue to support one another in applying best practices.

We are committed to building a strong community connecting parents, teachers and children.  The Sari Isdaner Early Childhood Center welcomes families of all faiths and cultures, and we look forward to welcoming you and your family!

Sari Isdaner Early Childhood Center at the Katz JCCFostering Imagination & Innovation

is incorporated into our curriculum to encourage creative learning and problem solving for children through teamwork and academic challenges in the fields of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics).

Always In Touch

We believe that communication between parents and school staff is essential in fostering your child’s growth.  Tadpoles, our digital communication tool, makes it seamless for teachers and administrators to communicate with you. Tadpoles provides parents with electronic daily reports, reminders, notes and photos of their child during the school day to see firsthand the experiences their child is having while with us.  Our school’s open door policy encourages parents to stop in, chat and visit with us at any time.

Enhancements To Our Program

Children enrolled in the Sari Isdaner Early Childhood Center enjoy the unique facilities of the Katz JCC, including music, art, and gym classes taught by our Health & Wellness staff. Additionally, the students have access to the JCC’s gymnasium, get swim lessons in our indoor pool taught by certified instructors through the Lenny Krayzelburg Swim Academy, and play with classmates in the Imaginarium indoor play structure. Furthermore, children participate in Jewish holiday celebrations throughout the year, as well as Shabbat celebrations.

“We think the world of the teachers and staff of the JCC’s early education center. The impact all of the teachers have made on my three children has been more profound than I could ever have imagined. You can’t quantify the value of a place where your children are loved, nurtured and protected outside of their own home the way they are when they’re a part of this incredibly amazing school.”
