This review is about the JCC preschool at Maitland. Something that I never realized would be so important is that the JCC is more than just a school because it is a community center. My children go to the library, gym, music room, and pool (in summer), in addition to playgrounds.. The children have a librarian, music teacher and gym teacher. In addition to playing in the pool, you can pay for swimming lessons. Also, several classrooms exchange different toys through the year. I have not seen any other local preschool with the variety and number of learning/educational toys. Additionally, children can be enrolled in other activities during the school day such as music, dance, art, etc in addition to what he does in the classroom..Also, there are many Mommy and me classes. Lastly, I love that every Friday the children celebrate Shabbat (even though I am not Jewish); they gather with other children the same age in the large auditorium to sing and dance together. The songs are lovely about family, joy, and faith. I have not yet seen a daycare/early preschool which has all these different types of experiences.
Our son, who is in kindergarten, attends the JCC afterschool program as we both work. The staff is very communicative, caring and professional, especially Lita Weinberg, who is a true delight. The staff truly loves children and they know everyone by name. In just one month, they have made a difference in our son s life by helping him with his reading and writing, something we have been struggling with all year. Thanks to the JCC s reading specialist, our kindergartener now knows 70 sight words and he is more confident when he is reading and writing. His teacher tells us he is at the top of his class and that she has seen a vast improvement since he has been going to the JCC after school!
The JCC is an amazing program. We have our son enrolled in the Preschool program and it is worth every penny. Small, dedicated classroom size and teacher:student ratio. The teachers go above and beyond to meet each child's needs and are flexible as our children grow. Very clean facility. They are closed several days of the year that most schools are not (the Jewish holidays) but they give you ample notice to make arrangements. They just redid the patio playground and it's wonderful, they offer lots of extras for students including art, PE and music and have several free weekend activities offered that are wonderful.
The school is old and outdated, overpriced, closed many days of the year, and the food requirements for the children's lunches are stifling. By moving to another "#1 parent rated school in Orlando" I am saving 26% a year which is massive. The new school offers included lunches, they're open longer and more days of the year, and the school is brand-new. I do love the teachers at the JCC, but overall it wasn't the best option for us.
