MJCCA Announces Preschool Registration for its Three Campuses: The Weinstein School (Dunwoody); The Schiff School (Sandy Springs); and The Sunshine School, (East Cobb)

Registration for 2020-2021 Opens for New Families on January 5, 2020.

The Marcus JCC of Atlanta is pleased to announce registration will open for the 2020-21 school year on January 5, 2020 for each of its preschools: The Weinstein School, at the MJCCA, 5342 Tilly Mill Road, Dunwoody; The Schiff School, at Temple Emanu-El, 1580 Spalding Dr, Sandy Springs; and The Sunshine School, at Temple Kol Emeth, 1415 Old Canton Rd, Marietta, with exciting programming slated for all three. More Info:, 678.812.3833.

“We are thrilled about everything we have lined up for the 2020-2021 preschool year,” says Kim Sucan, Director of MJCCA Preschools. “From new infant rooms to a successful returning Transitional Kindergarten class, there is so much to offer our families.”

The Weinstein School will offer its third year of Transitional Kindergarten, ideal for children who have completed a 4-year old preschool program, or who are ‘young’ five-year-olds, and may benefit from another year to develop academically, emotionally, physically and/or socially, before progressing to a public or private kindergarten program. The curriculum features literacy, math, science, and social studies exploration, as well as problem-solving and communications skills, with a heavy emphasis on social-emotional development.

“Having Ari do Transitional Kindergarten (TK) at The Weinstein School was the best decision we could have made,” explains preschool mom Allison Sofsky. “Ari grew and changed so much last year. We also love that he got to continue learning about Judaism and observe Shabbat. His teachers understood our child and his needs, and he just loved school. Ari is currently thriving in 1st grade!”

The Sunshine School is pleased to announce that in January 2020, it will open a new infant class.

“We are excited to bring the infant program back to The Sunshine School, after many years,” said Sucan. “There has been an increased demand for it, and we agreed that it was the right time. We are so pleased.”

Additionally, in 2020-2021, The Sunshine School in East Cobb is excited to announce it will offer its first Transitional Kindergarten class.

The MJCCA’s Schiff School is entering its third year in Fall 2020, and recently became accredited by the Georgia Accrediting Commission.

“Our newest MJCCA preschool, The Schiff School, is growing in so many areas,” says Sucan. “It offers an intimate environment with programs from infant through Pre-K, plus specials such as art, music, drama, science, PE, and all of the benefits of our MJCCA curriculum. Our families are especially excited about the beautiful, newly-installed preschool playground.”

“The MJCCA Preschool curriculum, which each of our schools follows, encourages children to be actively involved in the learning process,” says Sucan. “All lessons and activities are carefully selected to align with each stage of a child’s development. When children progress at their own pace, they experience success, and grow one step at a time.”

“The introduction of new skills and behaviors is always based on a child’s state of readiness, not on chronological age,” says Sucan. “It gives me great pride to say that our preschool’s balanced curriculum combines exploration and discovery, with academic readiness, and truly prepares children for elementary school.” 

 “Fall 2020 is just around the corner, and I am pleased to have our wonderful staff continue to provide educational, loving, and creative preschool experiences to the Atlanta community,” says Sucan. “With the combination of our exceptional teachers and our wonderful new and returning programs, I am confident that this will be our best preschool year yet.”
