Dishonest School, expensive to withdraw 11/7/2013

PJCC Preschool has made mistakes handing out inconsistent materials regarding fee policy, and they made parents pay for their mistakes. The director kept demanding payment (3 times) before it was due. In addition they worked hard to attempt to remove my review on Yelp. My child has been here for 1.5 years before I decided to transfer him to another preschool. There are several nice teachers, but there are quite a few cold ones who never greet parents or capable of smile, and I once heard one teacher yelled as loud as she could to another teacher (thank god not to a kid) in the multi-purpose room in front of all those kids. There are kids who hit and throw sands to others and they do nothing about it, don't bother to tell parents. I found out a few months ago PJCC accepted a few kids who got kicked out from other preschools for behavior problems. Also heard about kids who got beaten and again school never notified parents. This is a play based preschool so kids don't learn much, and the encirchment classes are during nap-time only. If you have napper the child will never get to attend those classes. Kids are forbidden to wear costume on Halloween. About cost: School plays tricks handing out inconsistent materials for fees. You need to pay up to 3 months of penalty to withdraw. 1 month tuition was non refundable deposit. If you withdraw on the 2nd of the month, you'll be charged for this month plus next month, plus the one month deposit. If you want to downgrade (for example switch from full time to half-day), you lose the difference between the two (since deposit is used for last month's tuition and is non-refundable) no matter what. more

Great teachers, enriching curriculum 8/1/2005

We could not be more pleased with the PJCC! My son was there for 2 years. The first year, his teacher was very in tune with child development and within 2 months was able to notice that his development was behind. I'm convinced that it might have been missed somewhere else. Thanks to Teacher Vicki, he has gotten the help he needs. His Pre-K gave him the emotional support he needed to make the transition into more academic stuff and to feel like everyone else. The curriculum, while Jewish based, is inclusive. It was more cultural than religious. We are Jewish, so it was wonderful to have them reinforce my son's identity and joy of the rituals of Judaism. But he was also learning his letters and doing art projects and Thanksgiving plays and playing with friends and reading stories and all the things you'd find in a non-Jewish preschool. Even in the 3 year old program, they go weekly to a "gym" movement class and host a music specialist. In the pre-K program, a water readiness swimming class is added. There are half-day and full-day options, enrichment (similar to recreation center classes) and a lunch program that extends the day for half-day participants. I am excited to see my son go to Kindergarten, but I will definitely miss the JCC and the JCC Community. more
