Early Childhood Programs at the J – Educating the Whole Child
The J is committed to helping St. Louis’s youngest learners experience new and exciting things every day. This is why the J offers a wide range of early childhood programs. Whether you’re looking for a structured learning environment in the J’s fully-accredited Early Childhood Center (available at both the Creve Coeur and Chesterfield locations) or “together time” at the Family Center, we believe that you’ll find myriad of programs to help your infant or toddler learn and grow!
Early Childhood Center at the J
The J’s Early Childhood Center, in partnership with the Family Center, is committed to providing quality care and education that embraces the development of children’s minds, bodies and souls. We stimulate the minds of young children through innovative and individualized curriculum, implemented by a well-trained staff in a safe, nurturing and developmentally-appropriate environment. Our two locations give parents in both the Creve Coeur and Chesterfield areas easy access to our program, and our children enjoy the benefits of all the J’s facilities – including year-round swimming and physical education classes.

The J’s Family Center
The Family Center is a part of the J’s Center of Jewish Community Life, serving families in the community with children ages five and younger. The Family Center provides a warm and nurturing environment for families to meet, make friends and grow together. We are one of very few Jewish parenting centers in the St. Louis community and our programs are open to people of all faiths, as well as to J members and the public.
