Early Childhood Directors Network


The Early Childhood Directors Network truly reflects the diversity of Cleveland’s Jewish community. This wonderfully collaborative group has directors that hail from our congregational, community-based and day school-based early childhood programs.  
The Early Childhood Directors Network meets monthly during the school year, with
a focus on:  
  • Collegial sharing of key early childhood issues including child development,    curriculum, administrative issues, and the Jewish growth of children and families.
  • Understanding and meeting the State of Ohio’s licensing requirements, and for            most of our Jewish programs the Step Up to Quality voluntary rating system.
  • Professional development of teachers, both within individual programs and        community-wide.
