The preschool has two shady areas for the children to play in. There are opportunities for climbing, sliding, riding tricycles, playing in the sandbox, and creative play.

The other programs have access to public School play areas.

It is a State requirement for children to rest, however, we do allow children to have books or other quiet toys if they are still awake after 30 minutes. 

JCCEC provides cots and sheets which we launder weekly or more if needed. Parents can bring in a small blanket, which is sent home to be washed. Children may also bring in a small stuffed toy to sleep with.
