Opportunity for Congregations to Work Collaboratively With ECE Centers
ECE-RJ is pleased to partner with the URJ on the first cohort of the Project Excellence for Early Childhood Congregational Education (PEECCE). The Project provides an opportunity for congregations to work collaboratively with their early childhood centers as they strive to vision and move forward in a thoughtful manner.
We live in times of constant change. Congregations and their early childhood education centers (ECECs) that are striving towards excellence need to intentionally examine their work based on 21st-century measures of success.
To address this need, the URJ and ECE-RJ are offering congregations with ECECs the opportunity to participate in Project Excellence for Early Childhood Congregational Education (PEECCE).
Through this project, participants engage in a self-reflection process of their congregation and ECEC using a customizable tool and guided by a URJ-trained coach. Topics for self-reflection include family satisfaction and retention, marketing, seamless integration of Judaism, and partnerships throughout the congregational community.
Together, congregational leadership teams and their coaches discover how the congregation and ECEC function in relation to these topics, identify and prioritize areas for growth, and create an action plan to move their community forward.
In light of the enthusiastic interest in this project, the application deadline has been extended to February 17, 2020. Click here for more information.
