Welcome to the Phylis J Green

Early Childhood Education Center!
Phone Number for ECC (954) 346-4281!

At Congregation Kol Tikvah we know that children are our most precious resource. Our school, the Phylis J Green ECC, was founded on the belief that the first few years of a child’s life provide the foundation for all later social and cognitive development as well as build self-esteem and a love for learning. We also know that our school is much more than just a place for children to learn and grow; it’s part of a Jewish community, a caring congregation and a loving family.

We’ve created a warm, positive and nurturing environment that enhances our children’s emotional, intellectual, social, physical, moral, creative and Judaic development. We recognize that every child is a unique individual and allow each child to experiment, explore, create, share and learn at his or her own pace. We maintain a small class size and excellent student/teacher ratio to ensure the beliefs we were founded on are maintained. As your children grow during their years at Kol Tikvah, they are building a foundation based on love, friendship and community. Walking through the doors will feel like coming home.
