The JCC is a go-to for many local parents in Worcester, Holden, Rutland, and around. The teachers are wonderful, and there is plenty of emphasis on swimming, sports, activities, art, etc. But, as a preschool program, there is little curriculum and there are quite often Jewish holidays in Sept/Oct that might fall on the days your child is supposed to attend. You might feel like you pay a lot of money and your child isn't even there for those months. It doesn't happen every year, it just depends how things line up. The JCC is a great program, however, with separation of ages and lots of fun, just not as curriculum oriented a a pre-k program might be.
