Little Maccabees Offers A Complete Early Childhood Experience In An Intimate Setting
Exclusive Preschool to Open in Pacific Palisades
Little Maccabees was originally conceived as a temporary facility that would remain open in the interim while permanent facilities were secured for the PJECC. However, the concept of an additional smaller preschool began to prove necessary to Chabad’s growing family base.
“There are simply more Jewish families moving to the Palisades these days,” says Rabbi Zushe Cunin, Director of the Chabad Jewish Community Center. “We want to provide parents with as many options for their children as possible. We have discovered that the Little Macabees preschool will serve a need for children who require a smaller environment in which they can learn.”
Ms. Barbara Leibovic, PJECC Director, is equally as excited. “When Rabbi Cunin and I presented the idea of a smaller, temporary preschool to the staff and parents, the feedback was surprising. We heard, ‘Why temporary? My child does better in a smaller setting.’ and ‘This would be would be ideal for the Mommy and Me program!’ Everyone is excited and ready to help provide an incredible unique early childhood learning experience.”
“We have our best teachers on board for next year.” explains Ms. Leibovic. “We also have a wonderful and developmentally appropriate curriculum planned for the children.”
Once the PJECC moves into its permanent facility, it will be able to accommodate over 70 children. Alternatively, Little Maccabees will cater to 28 children (14 per session) in its charming and intimate home based facility.
