All of our licensed early childhood programs share the same philosophy of learning through play. Teachers nurture and provide care and education for your children, building relationships of trust and security. We believe that your children’s growing capacity for kindness and compassion, creativity and critical thinking skills are the foundation for our future.

  • Our curriculum is constructed around children’s interests
  • Multi-aged groupings invite children to move through their day based on their interests and abilities
  • Children are immersed in the richness of Jewish traditions & values
  • The arts are used as a language for learning and self-expression
  • Science, math and literacy are integrated into programs in a hands-on, age appropriate way
  • Physical activity is an important part of each day


The Jewish Community Centre of Greater Vancouver would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to The Ben and Esther Dayson Charitable Foundation for an incredibly generous grant that has enabled us to construct a new outdoor play space, replacing the old JCC playground.

The new Ben and Esther Dayson Outdoor Learning Centre has been designed with input from children attending the Early Childhood Centre, and Paul Dirks, noted local playground architect.

In addition to creating an ecologically and environmentally sensitive play space, the playground incorporates design elements that reflect Jewish culture and traditions. Most importantly, the area is an exciting place for children to challenge their growing abilities in a safe and beautiful environment.

A special thank you to the Jewish Community Foundation and all our community donours who created such a wonderful initial groundswell of enthusiasm.
