Local families have spoken. The Sam Pomeranz Jewish Community Center’s Jerome and Phyllis Charney Early Childhood Development Program has been voted Hulafrog Syracuse’s most loved preschool for 2017. The award was announced in mid-February after parents voted on the Hulafrog website between January 6 and February 3 to select the most beloved family-friendly businesses in Central New York.

Other Hulafrog most loved categories awarded include pediatric dentist, ice cream parlor and kid friendly restaurant, among others. Hulafrog Syracuse is a local website started a couple of years ago which connects parents to local events and businesses in the community as well as to each other. The site is part of a larger network of Hulafrog sites in many cities across the country.

“We are extremely grateful for all of our families and everyone else who voted to help us win the most loved preschool award this year,” said Pamela Ranieri, JCC early childhood director. “We are so fortunate to have such kind and wonderful staff members who really put our kids and families first. This kind of recognition is extremely satisfying and reinforces the great work that everyone here does every day.”

The JCC’s Early Childhood Development Program is a comprehensive childcare facility and preschool rooted in Judaic teachings and traditions, serving infants six weeks old through pre-K children five-years old.
