Our children are the guarantors of the future for our community and our people. The Center for Jewish Education at the Chabad Center for Jewish Life invests in educational programs for young people so that they can carry forward the torch of Jewish life.

Jewish Early Learning Center
Preschool & Daycare
The Jewish Early Learning Center meets the highest standards of Early Child Education for the young child, engaging every facet of the child. We stimulate the mind with ideas, skills, music, and art. We help the body grow strong and healthy with a state of the art playground and nourishing Kosher meals. And we also transmit the values children need for a wholesome and rich life. We show them the heritage that belongs to them, nurture their souls, train their conscience, teach their hearts, and let them know that they belong. Most importantly, the Jewish ELC provides a child early in life with a firm sense of identity and pride in who they are.
