About The NSJCC

For over 30 years, the NSJCC has been known in the Greater Peabody area as a center for Jewish life and community programs, through its renowned Early Childhood Program and its many family and adult program offerings. The NSJCC offers infant, toddler, preschool, transitional kindergarten, and Kids Space After-School programs which operate 7AM – 6PM year round. The NSJCC has provided thousands of children with the warm, nurturing care that gives them an early sense of accomplishment and self-esteem. We provide a developmentally appropriate curriculum, based on knowledge of how children grow and what they can do socially, emotionally, cognitively and physically. We provide an atmosphere where children practice kindness and respect for one another and believe that children learn by being actively involved. Each of our programs is individualized to meet the needs of every child.

As of September 2012, the NSJCC has moved to a brand-new location at 240 Lynnfield Street, as part of the expanded campus of Aviv Centers for Living. Our state of the art facility has specially designed classrooms which are equipped with new, age-appropriate furniture, toys, reading areas, and learning centers. Our children utilize other larger spaces throughout the Aviv campus for community programs and school-wide activities. The NSJCC also features outdoor play spaces designed for each age group. The NSJCC also brings infant, toddler, preschool and school age children together with residents of Aviv Centers for Living to incorporate real life experiences into their curricula and expose children to the benefits of intergenerational relationships.

The NSJCC also offers many programs open to its members and community at-large. Recent family programs include Cuddle Up Shabbat programs, Rosh Hashanah apple picking, Havdalah concerts, and children’s book author events. Adult programs include a Women’s Tu B’Shevat Seder, the annual Shabbatini, as well as other social outings and fundraising events. Additional programs geared specifically for NSJCC alumni (children and adults) are also held throughout the year. Please visit our EVENTS Page for more information about upcoming events.
