Where Children Discover, Learn, and Grow

For nearly 35 years, WHC has had an exceptional and innovative preschool. The Rabbi Joseph Weinberg Early Childhood Center (RJWECC) at our Maryland campus and Edlavitch-Tyser Early Childhood Center (E-T ECC) at Temple provide a warm, positive environment where children can discover themselves and the world around them.

We believe children are capable, competent, and full of wonder. We view learning as a process of construction, growth, and reflection. Our team of educators provides intentional experiences that will spark questions, inspire creativity, and set the stage for positive interactions.

Jewish ethical values help provide a foundation from which we strive to nurture, support, and create connections with our children, families, professional staff, and community. Our inquiry-based educational approach, which integrates a Judaic and secular curriculum, embraces the very best of developmentally appropriate practice.


COVID-19 UPDATE: Prioritizing Safety & Community

We have re-opened our Early Childhood Center in Potomac, Maryland for in-person programming!

We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation in our area and any changes that may impact our decision. We recognize the volatility of the health pandemic in which we are currently living in and remain in frequent conversation with WHC’s Reopening Task Force, which includes two medical professionals that regularly monitor key data, staying abreast of information necessary to make informed decisions.
