About Deutsch Early Childhood Center

CURRICULUM
Our certified teachers and specialists engage children in activities that inspire experimentation and stimulate students to recognize problems and create solutions. Students develop positive self-esteem through a wide variety of hands-on activities which encourage play, develop natural curiosity, stimulate creative thinking, and encourage empathy for and acceptance of peers and adults.

Children will participate in art, music, cooking, Hebrew, Spanish, and movement. DECC also has a fabulous enrichment program that promotes investigative learning, as well as a STEAM room for little scientists and creatives. 

Throughout each child's Jewish preschool education, they will celebrate Shabbat and holidays with the Rabbis and with their peers at in-school Tot Shabbat services and classroom celebrations. They will learn Jewish songs and prayers and help to make and taste traditional Jewish foods, as well as enjoy their very own Passover Seder.

WHY DEUTSCH EARLY CHILDHOOD CENTER?
At DECC, every teacher knows your child's name, and you'll feel the sense of relief that you are not alone along the journey of parenting a preschooler. Our entire team is here to support you, to have your back on those days when you feel overwhelmed, and to celebrate those little milestones and magic moments with as much enthusiasm as you feel as a parent.

DECC also accommodates your family's changing daily schedules. We are open Monday-Friday from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm with flexible scheduling of days and hours meet your needs.

Our ultimate goal is to teach our children what it means to be productive members of the community. If you're shopping for a preschool that fits your family, we welcome the opportunity to show you why DECC may just be a perfect fit.

Make a Contribution to TI's Safety & Security Fund

Though security has been a key priority at TI for many years, we also recognize that these are unusual times, and so we’ve created a Safety & Security Fund to help keep our campus as secure as possible.  Your generosity enables us to take proactive safety measures so that cost is not the deciding factor in how well we are able to protect those who come to learn and worship here at TI.
