Education & Families

Discovery is an amazing thing. At the J, we encourage members and the community to expand their horizons, grow together, and try new things with experiences that let children and adults of all ages, stages, and abilities learn from each other and the world around us.

Meet new friends in parent-child classes or enroll your little one in one of the best early childhood education programs in southeast Wisconsin. Let your kids hop on the JCC bus after school knowing that they will have the space to release their boundless energy and expand their learning through swim lessons, sports, and explorations in the arts and sciences. As an adult learner, you will expand upon your understanding of Jewish tradition and culture and find a brave space to discuss the complex issues of today.

Looking for some family fun? Enjoy time together and connect with other families at special events peppered throughout the calendar – dances, movie nights, bounce house fun, and Jewish holiday celebrations.

You don’t have to join the JCC to take a class or participate in most education programs, but if you are a member, you get a discounted rate, and only members may enroll in Gan Ami Early Childhood Education. But lucky for you, JCC membership is open to everyone!
