By David Manchester

February 14, 2016

Nationwide, Jewish early childhood centers are struggling to maintain enrollments and stay open. In the Boston area, several Jewish Early Childhood Education Centers (ECEs) have closed their doors since 2012. Concerned about this trend and the long term implications, the Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP) sought to understand factors influencing a family’s choice of ECE for their children. Utilizing a survey of Jewish families with preschool children in the Boston area, longitudinal reports from the Jewish ECEs, and literature from around the US, this policy analysis sought to better understand a parental decisions and other challenges facing the field.
