Free Program:


Story Time at the J (for ages 0-4 years old) alternates with Baby Lap Time (for pre-walking babies, age newborn-14 months).  See below for program descriptions. 

The Story Time and Baby Lap Time programs are on hiatus for the summer.  They will return in the fall, after the Jewish holidays.  

These programs begin at 10:00am and meet in the
Etzim Room (Preschool classroom 5, 2nd floor).  These programs are FREE, with no reservation required, but attendance is limited to the first 20 children.  All children must be accompanied by caregivers at all time. 

BABY LAP TIME (pre-walking babies, age newborn-14 months)

Snuggle and bond with your new baby as we sing, tickle, kiss, and bounce our way into a lifelong love of language and reading! You’ll learn new rhymes and songs to sing with your baby, be introduced to developmentally appropriate read-aloud books, and join your baby in cooperative group play!   

STORY TIME AT THE J (ages 0-4 years old)
Join us at the J for a weekly free story hour and playtime!  From 10-10:30, enjoy free play in our preschool space, then gather on the carpet from 10:30-11 for stories and songs led by a DCJCC Preschool teacher. 

Please contact Miriam Szubin, at with any questions about these programs.
