Shalom and welcome to The Leonard and Syril Rubin Early Childhood Center.

The Leonard and Syril Rubin Early Childhood Center at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades is a developmentally appropriate and child centered program. We believe that children learn through their play and through their experiences. Our warm and nurturing teachers are highly qualified and experienced, and provide hands on and experiential opportunities for our students to learn, grow, and thrive each day. It is our goal for children to become independent, confident, responsible, and successful learners in our loving and secure environment.

We welcome the opportunity to get to know you and your children and invite you to come visit us and learn more about our school. Register for our upcoming open houses or schedule a private tour by contacting us at or 201.408.1436.

Devin Zukofsky,
Early Childhood Director
