The JCC Nursery School and Pre-K enriches a child’s natural love of learning and encourages growth in social, emotional, cognitive and physical development. Our program offers a play based child centered curriculum for ages 13 months through 5 years of age. The JCC offers a range of attendance options based on age, three and five-day-a-week programs, and a half day option, as well. Before and After Care are also available. Families of all faiths are welcome.
Our community embraces children through education, sports, and family activities. Located in the Uptown JCC, the JCC Nursery School has acted as a pillar of early childhood education in New Orleans for over half-a-century.
