Early Childhood Programs
Forest Hills Child Care Center
For more than 31 years, JCCA’s Forest Hills Child Care Center has been one of the community’s oldest and most trusted child care programs for children, ages 2-4. Our children thrive in a safe and nurturing environment while our professional, caring staff teaches a rich curriculum that promotes universal values based on Jewish stories, traditions, and culture.
“JCCA day care is the best peace of mind a parent can have. I can go to work with full confidence that my son is in a caring, safe, educational, and fun environment. That peace of mind is priceless! In addition, my son adores his teachers, who are patient and loving. They have helped him be more patient with himself and more respectful to others.”
