Why Choose a Jewish Early Childhood Program?

Are you ready to start thinking about preschool? Are you curious about what Jewish options exist in metro Denver/Boulder? Are you wondering what defines a high-quality Jewish early childhood experience and what are the benefits? What is the difference between early childhood education (ECE) and preschool? What are the important timelines to know? Watch our video to learn more

The Efshar Project was created to build Jewish identity and ensure quality early learning experiences at Jewish ECE Centers. One of our goals is to ensure that exemplary early education experiences, grounded in Jewish values, serve as a starting point for any family seeking high-quality formative learning within a Jewish setting. 

We want to support families in finding the program that is right for their children and family. We have gathered some helpful resources to support families in making informed decisions about their children’s education and care. These resources will help you learn more about what high-quality early childhood education programs look like and what questions to ask and things to look for while touring programs. We have also created a simple to use, quick guide on what our 11 Jewish partner schools have to offer and where they are located. 

Please reach out to us with any questions, thoughts or other areas of support you would like us to provide. We look forward to supporting you and your family and we welcome you to our community.
