Our Teachers


Experienced professional staff members strive for a warm relationship with each child, while implementing a stimulating learning experience. There are two teachers in every classroom, a lead teacher and an assistant teacher. Lead teachers have either a college degree or a recognized state certification in early childhood education. Many of our assistant teachers also have the state certification or are working towards it. Local, state and federal background checks are conducted on all staff. All staff are required to attend in-service trainings during the year to enhance their professional skills. Much of what adds to the recognized quality of the JCC Preschool is the low turnover in staff. We are fortunate to have dedicated, loving and experienced teachers to enrich the classroom environment.

Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten


The Tampa Jewish Community Centers & Federation began participating in the Florida Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) program in October 2005. The Florida VPK program was created to prepare every Florida four-year-old for kindergarten and build a strong foundation for their continued educational success. Priority is given to students who register for the classes that include additional instructional days and hours. The VPK program is offered only when space is available.


The Judaic component of the JCC Preschool is a significant part of our Early Childhood Curriculum. We provide our preschoolers and their families with an appreciation and awareness of the Jewish holidays and values and a strong sense of Jewish identity. By integrating Judaic experiences into a child’s life, he/she develops a complete, wholesome self concept, and a sense of identification with family, the Jewish community, the American people and the world.

Parental Involvement


The Parent Association enables parents to help in their child’s classrooms, assist in special functions and organize fundraising projects for the school. We have two regularly scheduled parent-teacher conferences. Parents are always welcome to visit and participate in their child’s class.

Quality Care


The preschool provides your child with the highest quality of early childhood education and child care. Both schools are licensed through the Hillsborough County Child Care Licensing Office. This ensures that we meet the necessary health and safety requirements established by Hillsborough County and the State of Florida.
