Child Care in Overland Park


CDC At-A-Glance

For children ages 12 months and walking to Pre-Kindergarten

The Child Development Center (CDC) at The J is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and has been providing outstanding child care in Overland Park for more than 80 years. Our play-based learning environment welcomes all children to learn, play and grow at an individualized pace in a warm, loving environment.

Convenience

The CDC is an excellent choice for child care in Overland Park. Centrally located at 115th + Nall near Town Center Plaza, the CDC offers convenient pick-up and drop-off.

Full-time care: Monday – Friday | 7 am – 6 pm
Part-time care: 2, 3 or 5 half-days | 9 am – 1 pm

 

Food

Breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack are served daily, featuring healthy and nutritious meals. All food is Vaad-supervised Kosher and prepared on-site. The Child Development Center at The J provides a peanut free environment for all students. 

 

Special Needs

Sasone, a Jewish community inclusion program, provides support for children identified with developmental, physical, mental, or behavioral issues. Sasone provides Para-Educators for children with special needs so that they can attend Jewish preschools and Jewish summer camp programs. For more information, please contact the CDC office at (913) 981.8876 or by email.

 

Jewish Curriculum

Under the guidance of our on-staff Judaic Specialist, all children learn about Jewish values and traditions, including holidays. Universal and Jewish values of caring and sharing are emphasized in our classrooms, fostering self-confidence that results from a well-rounded experience.

Sheva, meaning seven in Hebrew, is an early learning framework exclusive to JCC's. It boasts seven core elements, each firmly rooted in the latest research on child development.

Enrichment Opportunities

More than just child care in Overland Park, The CDC can be a "one-stop-shop" for your family! When your child is enrolled in the CDC, they will not only be participating in the highest-quality activities, but we virtually eliminated the time-eating hassles of transporting your child to dance class, music and art lessons, sports, cooking class, swimming lessons, STEM, and more!

Enrichment Opportunities

 

Community

We take great pride in creating and cultivating a genuine community of caring and loving parents, students, teachers, and staff who work together. Unlike many of our competitors, the CDC at The J isn’t a manufactured environment run out of a corporate office in another city. We’re real, and we’re here, for you and your child. It is in our name - The Jewish Community Center. Our longevity in the Overland Park community has resulted in children, parents, and grandparents who have grown to know and love us, often forging friendships with other families that last l’dor va’dor (from generation to generation).

 

Financial Assistance

The J now offers financial assistance for CDC enrollment using FACTS, a third-party provider. As always, your financial information will be completely confidential.
