The IKAR Early Childhood Center (ECC) is built around core Jewish values and based upon philosophies inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach. We aim to nurture gratitude, humility, and social responsibility in our children, families, and staff. The ECC provides a loving and engaging environment in which our children’s physical, social, emotional, cognitive, creative, and spiritual growth is supported and their individuality respected.

We invite you to come for a tour! Please email Beth Weisman, Director of Admissions and Parenting, at to reserve a spot.

We are now accepting applications for children ages 2-4 years old for the 2015-16 school year.
