Founded in 1971, Silver Spring Learning Center continues to inspire thousands of children to love learning, build resilience and foster a sense of confiedence-in a loving, supportive and nurturing environment.
As a Social Emotional Learning (SEL) framework Early Childhood Center, the SSLC team strives to implement personal growth development, empathy, model healthy communication and mindfulness practice- with the goal of instilling the beginnings of confidence, resilience, healthy communication, creativity and problem solving skills- all in an environment that promotes equity and self awareness.
Silver Spring Learning Center serves at the Early Childhood Education and ChildCare home for Silver Spring Jewish Center, an Orthodox Synagogue located right in the heart of the Kemp Mill Jewish communuity.
Please note: While SSLC is open to our entire community and has always welcomes families of all backgrounds and ethnicities, SSLC is a Jewish Faith-Based Preschool program, and as such, our school wide curriculum includes an emphasis on Jewish holidays, rituals, blessings and values.
At this time, SSLC programs are open to children ages 24 months through 5 years of age.
Kindergaren and 1st/2nd grade Jewish Day School program are available through our affiliate, LBJA. Please email Director Shoshanna Schechter for more information at Director@silverspringlearningcenter.org
Hours of care offered from 7:30am to 6pm, M-F
Families can choose between our "classic" Jewish preschool classes or our unique Hebrew Immersion program.
Please note, while our "classic" program does include an introduction to the Hebrew Aleph-Bet and a rich foundation in all aspects of Jewish traditions, ritual and culture, the Hebrew Immersion program teaches the Judaics portion of their class fully in modern Hebrew.
All classes also introduce age appropriate pre-writing, pre-reading, early math and science skills all while balancing peer to peer interaction through free play, art, music, yoga, mindfulness practice and more.
At this time we are full for Fall 2020 registrations for all age levels. Please email Office@silverspringlearningcenter.org to be added to our waitlist! We can't wait to welcome you to the SSLC family!
We have adjusted our program to ensure that we comply with the current health and safety guidelines required by the State of Maryland and our licensing agency. Therefore, our classroom spots are more limited than normal. We sincerely apologize to any families that we have not been able to offer a spot to at this time. Please consider being added to the waitlist.
