Early Childhood Education (ECE) Center

Temple Etz Chaim ECE Center offers one of Conejo Valley’s largest, loveliest, and liveliest child care facilities. We like to think of Temple Etz Chaim as a place that children and adults consider their second home…a place where they are accepted and loved…a place where laughter and play are cherished…a place where children’s rhythms are caught and given warm response.

We hold special pride in our preschool, infant, and parent and me programs. Our center’s professional staff are selected for their knowledge of child development as well as their strong interpersonal skills; they are the strength of our programs.

Our Preschool and Infant Programs are licensed by the State of California, Department of Social Services, and affiliated with the Bureau of Jewish Education. Our licenses are posted outside our school office.
