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\
