The Best Place To Be
The HJC Early Learning Center provides early childhood education in a unique and nurturing environment. We have been welcoming children from the general community as well as our congregation since 1977.

The HJC Early Learning Center nurtures young children’s curiosity, sense of wonder, belonging, and deep engagement with the world around them, preparing them to develop the critical skills needed to enter kindergarten and reach their full potential. Our caring and knowledgeable teachers and staff support the development of friendships, foster positive conflict resolution skills, and ensure that children have a sense of belonging and feel safe and valued for their unique gifts.

We believe that young children flourish in environments where play, experimentation and positive interactions are at the core of their everyday experiences; and have the capacity to persevere with great concentration on challenges that truly engage them and light the fire of their curiosity. We offer a full early learning curriculum including art, math, music, science, stories and all kinds of play.

The HJC Early Learning Center is located in Temple Adas Shalom, The Harford Jewish Center at 8 North Earlton Road, Extension in Havre de Grace, MD and will open on September 4, 2018, serving children 2-4 years with a variety of options listed below.
