Westchester Reform Temple Early Childhood Center

The Early Childhood Center of Westchester Reform Temple is more than just a preschool. We are dedicated to enriching young children’s lives spiritually, emotionally, socially, intellectually, and physically. We are committed to an early childhood setting that is respectful of people and materials, steeped in creativity, and encouraging an active curiosity about the world in which we live. Extended-day lunches and classes are offered for 3- and 4-year-olds. Soccer, cooking, science, and more! In partnership with parents, our objective is to provide a love for learning and Jewish family life.
