Early Childhood Education


Welcome to our Early Childhood Center!

The J will be using a phased approach to our re-opening with more programs and services being made available in later phases. Check back often as we update this list in the coming weeks.


Kids are our passion, and we feel humbled every day for the opportunities we have to learn and grow alongside them.

We offer care for infants, toddlers and preschoolers, helping your child to develop new skills and interests. Our stimulating and nurturing environment creates a warm atmosphere that builds your child’s self-esteem and curiosity.

Our Early Childhood Center (ECC) is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, the nation’s leading organization of early childhood professionals. The process to earn accreditation is intense, with only eight percent of all US preschool and early childhood programs succeeding. To earn NAEYC Accreditation, our ECC was measured against the ten NAEYC Early Childhood Program Standards and more than 400 related criteria. This accreditation speaks to the high quality of the St. Paul JCC’s early childhood programs and our dedication to your family.

Childcare is offered from 7:30 AM – 6 PM, up to five days per week.

JCC membership is required prior to enrollment in early childhood programs.
