MJCCA Preschools provide a warm, nurturing educational environment that is infused with the richness of Jewish values and customs. By choosing these preschools parents are giving thier child a lifelong gift - a solid foundation for a successful educational journey. The Preschools in East Cobb and Dunwoody embrace families from all backgrounds and cultivate a connection to Jewish values and tradition. While there are many Atlanta preschools to choose from, the MJCCA is recognized as being one of the best.

Some children face certain learning challenges. Because of their comprehensive training and experience, MJCCA staff is often able to identify a child's particular challenges early enough to successfully achieve timely intervention. This allows the preschool to choose the most appropriate learning path for his or her special needs; whether that includes autism, ADD, ADHD, developmental delay, or a developmental disability.

Since 1996, the MJCCA has partnered with the Adaptive Learning Center to provide specialized services such as screening, classroom support, facilitation, and consulting, to young children with learning challenges. This inclusionary program has served as a model to other preschools throughout Metro Atlanta.

In order to better serve the growing needs of those on the Autism Spectrum as well as those with special needs, the MJCCA offers inclusion programming. With the support of a Learning Style Specialist, children now have access to the same wonderful opportunities as their typical peers.
