About Us

At JGELC, we are a community of learners that work together, ask questions, and explore big concepts that help to promote the growth and development of each child. We see children as active learners who engage in exploring the world around them to make discoveries and foster skills that build the foundation of developing a love of learning.


Jewish values are woven into our daily curriculum and it is our hope that children develop a positive Jewish identity through exploring the richness of Jewish  holidays, traditions, and values. We guide our children and families in exploring these basic principles:

1. We take care of ourselves  

2. We take care of our community

3. We take care of the world.

Our community is warm, caring and inclusive.  All children and families are welcome in school. We have and will continue to welcome children and parents of a variety of religious and ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientation and abilities.

"I don't want to grow up and get bigger because then I have to leave my school and I love my school."
