Infant & Toddler Care

Sari Isdaner Early Childhood Center at the Katz JCC: Infant & ChildcareFull & Part Time Programs: Ages 6 Weeks – 2 Years Old

The Sari Isdaner Early Childhood Center infant and toddler program begins for children as young as six weeks old. The program offers developmentally appropriate activities to promote emerging social-emotional, physical, cognitive and verbal skills through play. Our nurturing staff, with a 4:1 child-to-staff ratio, uses music and movement, multi-sensory experiences, play stations and our tiny tots outdoor playground for fun experiences for the little ones.

Infant Care

When your child is part of our infant program, our nurturing staff is dedicated to providing an exceptional experience for you and your little one.  We support and encourage your baby’s development with appropriate activities that encourage growth within their first 12 months of life.  This is the first stepping stone on their path to success throughout their early years.

From tummy time to rolling over, from grasping to sitting, from crawling to pulling up to standing up are unmistakable developmental milestones and signs that your baby is growing fast!  We also provide daily electronic reports through Tadpoles, our digital communications tool, which documents your baby’s day with us, including diaper changes, feedings, naps etc.

Toddler Program

Katz JCC Toddler ProgramOur toddler program’s highly trained teachers plan daily activities and sensory experiences that encourage your child’s exploration and creativity. Toddlers thrive in a setting that provides consistency and structure.  Our daily schedule combines a balance of quiet activities, designated play areas, music and movement and climbing and jumping in the Imaginarium, our indoor play structure.  Your toddler will experience activities including stories, songs, rhymes and patterns that support and encourage their language development.

These activities support your toddler’s development as they progress from playing on their own to playing together.  This also encourages children to develop and foster friendships with their peers.   We also provide daily electronic reports through Tadpoles, our digital communications tool, which documents your child’s day with us, including diaper changes, snacks and meals, naps etc.
