Mid-Island Y
JCC Early Childhood Center

In a time when children rarely go outside to play anymore, we are very fortunate to have our Nature Explore Classroom.

The children are able to explore in our dig boxes, plant seeds and observe animals such as chickens, birds and squirrels. We utilize our greenhouse to cultivate our seedlings during the cold winter months. Our classrooms visit the Nature Explore Classroom on a daily basis and we host a weekly shabbat gathering in our amphitheater. We love creating artwork outside in our Nature Explore Classroom and are often inspired by our surroundings.
