Preschool Email Updates 3/23:

Dear Preschool Parents,

First and foremost, I hope this note finds you and your families healthy. Secondly, I know there are a lot of questions and I hope that this message answers some of them. I recognize that our closure has significant implications for all of you and ask for your patience as we work thorough the challenges we are facing as a community organization. We do not take for granted that you choose to bring your children to the David Posnack JCC everyday. In a service-rich world, we know you can go anywhere, and are so inspired that you choose us as your community.

Tuition and Camp Payments:

As you know, our payments run on the 10th of every month. Our JCC operates on a budget of 10 million a year, or about $800,000 a month. The majority of our costs are covered by tuition dollars from preschool, after school, camp and membership dues. The reason we break down the yearly preschool tuition by month is to ensure that these payments are manageable for our parents and also to ensure that our staff can be compensated. It is our intention, at this time, to run the payment as planned on April 10th. For the majority of our parents, this is the final payment of the 2019-2020 school year.

Camp payments, which are normally processed on April 1, will NOT be charged at this time. The payment will be postponed for a future date. All future camp payments will be re-evaluated. We are hopeful that this summer will be better than ever and we look forward to welcoming your child/ren with big smiles and open arms!

For those who have been directly impacted during this unprecedented time (laid off or furloughed, at home with someone who is sick, in quarantine, etc.) the JCC is here for you. Please contact Eileen Neidorf for assistance.

Our Staff and Our Future:

What we know is that our staff will continue to serve you using all of our available resources, and we plan to continue to serve you after this is over and we are back together as a J family at our center.

As the CEO of this JCC, whether I know you personally or I just said hello in passing, I am committed to seeing this through. We are more than just a building and we are here for you, our youngest members, during these times. We thank you for your trust, your patience and your understanding.

Be well,
Scott Ehrlich
Chief Executive Officer, David Posnack JCC


Dear Preschool Parents,

I hope you had a nice weekend and that this email finds you and your families healthy.

This morning you received an email from me that had some incorrect information.
The previous email stated that we are going to run the April 10th preschool tuition payment, which would've been the final payment for the majority of our families. Please disregard that. Our intention at this time is to charge the final preschool tuition payment of the year on May 10th, 2020.

As we get closer, we will reevaluate this decision to determine the best course of action as circumstances provide. We will be in touch with you should anything change.

I truly appreciate your patience as we work thorough the challenges we are facing as a community organization.

Thank you for your trust and your understanding.

Be well,
Scott Ehrlich
Chief Executive Officer, David Posnack JCC

Testimonials

My name is Brittany Reese. As children, my brother, sister and I all loved going to preschool at the David Posnack JCC, so I was very excited that I was able to enroll my son Jace in the preschool program. Jace was nervous before his first few days of school, but the JCC staff made him feel comfortable every day. He is now in the 2-year-old program and is excited about going to school every morning - even on the weekends! The staff is remarkable, and I am so happy to have chosen the JCC for my son. I love the J!
