Great beginnings start with great educators – and at Zale, there are three teachers in every classroom. Levis JCC Zale teachers and administration bring years of experience combined with innovation and creativity to classrooms and programs. We take pride in the fact that all of our teachers are among the most respected professionals in our area. They possess a keen understanding of child development, an interest in the uniqueness of each child and an ability to provide a warm and nurturing environment.

Curriculum »

Our curriculum is recognized by area schools for graduating children well prepared for kindergarten and beyond. Zale teachers provide creative and stimulating ways for children to be challenged and to learn. Language activities, reading and math games, songs, construction, drama and scientific experiments all help children develop important cognitive, motor and social skills. Our curriculum builds the skills that are necessary for children to become problem solvers, successful students and lifelong learners with a desire to learn more.

Our program is designed with learning experience to meet multiple areas of development: academic, social, emotional, physical and creative. As part of our standard curriculum, we offer weekly specials in: music, library, movement, science, physical education, Judaics, sensory, gardening, zumba, yoga and Israeli dancing.

Jewish values are woven throughout our program with opportunities for those of all backgrounds, religions and beliefs to connect to each other and the larger JCC community.


At Levis JCC Zale, we believe children are capable of extraordinary things. Our passion is to provide your child with developmentally appropriate learning opportunities, love and support while nurturing their academic growth. Our goal for each child is to be successful in their next steps and be filled with confidence.

Separation Classes (18-20 months)

Toddlers ease into school with all of the love and support they need. Our unique separation classes enable toddlers to experience the wonder and excitement of going to school with time to gradually separate from parents. Children initially attend classes with a parent (or caregiver) and then gradually gain independence with loving support from our teachers.

Preschool (Age 2 - Pre-K)
