Core Program

OKECC opens each weekday at 7:30am, closes at 6:00pm Monday-Thursday, and closes by 6:00pm on Fridays, with the time varying throughout the year in accordance with Shabbat. The school year runs approximately 40 weeks for children enrolled in our Half Day program and year-round for children enrolled in our Full Day program. All children enrolled at OKECC participate in the morning portion of our Core Program that runs from 9:15am-1:00pm. In the later part of the morning, OKECC provides all children with a kosher and nut-free snack. Families provide a nut-free dairy lunch.

Early Drop-off

We offer an early drop-off program for students when space is available. Children may arrive at any time between 7:30-9:00am. The children are involved in supervised indoor free play activities and are seamlessly integrated into their core classroom by 9:15am.

Enrichment

OKECC provides various programs from 1:15pm to 2:30pm that run on a weekly schedule, with different activities offered each day of the week. Options vary each year, and have included Art, Music, Sports and Hebrew.

To enroll in enrichment or for more information see our Forms and Calendars that contain specifics on the current year offerings.

Music and Hebrew

Ms. Ellie Schuchman (music specialist) and Raviv Brooks (Hebrew specialist) visit each class weekly for music and Hebrew.  These weekly specials are an integral and meaningful part of our day at the ECC.

Ms Ellie brings a love of music and Judaism to the children when she joins their classroom one day a week. The children learn a variety of songs, from children’s classics to the latest Jewish holiday songs, as well as traditional Jewish songs and songs in Hebrew. With her guitar in hand, props and musical instruments by her side, the children engage in an interactive, joyous experience.

During Hebrew with Raviv, the children become familiar with the Hebrew language, through songs, stories and dramatic play. Israel is also a piece of the curriculum and is shared in an organic way.

Ta’am Shel Shabbat

Every Friday we celebrate the “sweetness of Shabbat” with music and dance.  All are welcome and encouraged to join us.

Summer Program

With the same hours of operation as the preschool program, including early drop-off and enrichment options, OKECC Summer Discovery is a fun-filled summer program available for our Half Day children and other families in our community seeking a summer option for their children. Weekly themes, water play, Ta'am Shel Shabbat, and special visitors are all part of summer program.
