When it comes childcare for your little one this coming fall, now is the time to start planning. Early registration for the 2016–2017 school year is now open to current ECDP families and JCC members. New families may take advantage of early bird registration by joining the JCC of Syracuse now in order to reserve their child's spot for the fall.

Young children are full of wonder. Their curiosity and hunger for knowledge makes the early childhood years a crucial time for learning, so it's important that they experience the world in ways that will foster self-confidence and build a solid foundation for future success.

During such formative years, it is essential to offer young children an arena in which to discover the world around them and participate in educational, yet fun, activities that will introduce them to the concepts of learning and team work. Our highly qualified and encouraging staff provides an atmosphere in which children come to recognize their needs as well as the needs and rights of their peers.

We provide a developmentally appropriate environment that allows every child to know the true joy of discovery through a broad spectrum of experiences.
