About Our Center

Based on a forward-thinking and constantly evolving – yet deep-rooted educational philosophy – the Edward & Thelma Glantz Early Childhood Learning Center focuses on welcoming children and their families into a quality educational experience based on Jewish values. Children are encouraged to develop and grow as individuals as well as members of the Jewish community.

Housed at the Mandel JCC in Boynton Beach, its spaces and environments are designed to provoke wonder, curiosity, intellectual engagement and creativity with endless possibilities. Children are given essential opportunities at a young age to develop life skills, such as focus and self-control, communication and critical thinking.

Children are seen as competent, curious, capable, natural learners who are full of potential. Teachers and children have ongoing interaction in a space where the curriculum combines the children’s ideas, wonders and interests with the faculty’s knowledge of child development.
