Early Childhood Academy

Preschool is a time for your little one to fall in love with education.
Our nurturing Early Childhood Academy offers, in addition to a full academic curriculum, a stimulating learning environment, engaging music, swimming, and Israeli dance programs, as well as deep integration of Jewish values and traditions. ECA is the perfect place for children to learn, grow, enhance their skill levels, develop a healthy self-esteem, and form close relationships with their teachers and classmates.

My name is Jenny Tettner, and I have been a Jewish educator for more than twenty years, both in the United States and Venezuela. Eleven years ago, I embarked on a journey to offer an excellent educational program for our children and their families at the MARJCC’s Early Childhood Academy.


The Early Childhood Academy is a learning community devoted to providing a stimulating environment that promotes the development and meaningful relationships under the umbrella of Jewish values, our connections with Israel, and traditions.


We work together with each student’s family to facilitate children’s development as critical thinkers, problem solvers, citizens, and active members of their communities. Respect, cooperation, empathy, tolerance, and creativity are values that sustain our daily work.


Our children enjoy various enrichment activities as part of the curriculum, including yoga, swimming, Hebrew language, art, music, and Israeli Dance.


The Early Childhood Academy is the entry point to all the wonderful activities the MARJCC offers children of all ages.


I hope you choose to learn more about us and become a part of the MARJCC family!
