Early Childhood Center

J baby (2-12 Months)

Family Participation Classes offer fun and learning in a welcoming atmosphere for children and their caregivers.  This is a great way to make friends that you and your family will keep for a lifetime!

Yad b Yad

One of the better parts of being a parent is enjoying new experiences alongside your baby—while also meeting new friends and having social interaction with other moms and dads who relate exactly to what you’re going through. Here’s your chance to interact with your young one in one of our fun, structured Parent and Child classes.

Early Childhood Education (Preschool)

The Alpert JCC’s award winning Early Childhood Education program is truly one of the best places for your children to be.  Our loving and trained staff provide learning and growth opportunities that will help each child grow into a sensitive, self-directed, creative and confident whole person.

Sheva Early Learning Frame Work

Sheva is the number 7 in Hebrew.  Our ECE follows the Sheva Framework, developed using the latest research on child development to create an early childhood experience that will help your child achieve social, emotional and academic success.

Enrichment Classes

Kids’ University is Long Beach’s best after school enrichment program.  Our shuttle buses pick up kids from many Long Beach area schools, and bring them to the Alpert JCC for supervised homework assistance, and a selection of enrichment classes, including computers, swimming, theatre arts, Judaic studies and more!
