Our Story

The Jewish Community Center (JCC) of Sonoma County hosts programs throughout the community. We currently run the Friendship Circle, a program for people 55 and older, a Jewish Film Festival and ran Camp Chai for 40 years, up until Covid-19. We provide community programs annually and come together to celebrate special occasions and holidays. 

We are part of the North American JCC movement, the largest network of early childhood education on the continent and use their Sheva Framework to help guide the best professional practices at our school.We hope to have several centers around Sonoma County to create small, intimate communities of young families and staff under one united umbrella that can come together periodically for special celebrations and community learning. 

We focus on 3 early childhood ideas to guide our students through their development: the Reggio-Inspired approach, social-emotional growth, and Jewish values.
