The JCC’s Early Childhood Development Centers (ECDC), located in Squirrel Hill and South Hills, provide a nurturing, enriching and safe environment for young children age 6 weeks to five years old.

Our child care and preschool programs offer flexible scheduling with extended day options, kindergarten enrichment and summer camps from 7 am to 6 pm every weekday.

ECDC prepares children for the academic and life challenges ahead. Enriched with language, reading, math, science, art, music and fun, we promote Jewish values, encourage children to appreciate diversity and provide an environment that promotes acceptance and a sense of belonging.

ECDC staff are caring educators with decades of professional experience. We provide ongoing training and maintain the highest standards in early childhood education.

Our center is housed in a secured dedicated wing the JCC. Our program features access to the JCC’s indoor pools for swimming and gymnasiums and outdoor playgrounds for fitness activities and play. Children are served healthy kosher breakfasts, lunches and snacks.

Major funding for Early Childhood programming is provided by the Pittsburgh Jewish Pre-Kindergarten Educational Improvement Foundation of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh.
