The Annual Campaign is the way in which you can help support the Early Childhood Education (ECE) Program. With your help, the Campaign raises money to support special programs, scholarships, professional development and the “education gap.”
Your generous contribution will make a significant impact in the lives of our children and help ensure that they continue to receive an outstanding education inspired by the Reggio-Emilia approach and guided by Jewish values.
