About Our Center
Opened in 2007 and often described by parents as their child’s, “home away from home,” Kol Ami Early Learning Center is located on the grounds of a charming multi-acre estate, a setting highly conducive to playing and learning. With a mix of independent and organized activities, education, and recreational opportunities, our program offers experiences requiring investigation, exploration and discovery, where active and enthusiastic children can develop and refine their skills and knowledge.
Embracing hands-on, collaborative, and joyful learning
The Federation Early Learning Centers use The Creative Curriculum®, a comprehensive, research-based, and developmentally appropriate curriculum that follows children’s interests as they work together to explore, investigate, and make discoveries about the world around them and the people, places, and objects that are relevant to their lives.
We are accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the gold standard for early childhood programs across the country.
According to parents, our teachers are warm, patient and loving. They encourage children to explore, experiment and reach their own conclusions by thinking for themselves. They create an inclusive, nurturing environment where intellectual curiosity is applauded and children are proud of their accomplishments. Many have been with us for 10 years.
Our curriculum provides an age appropriate introduction to Jewish culture, traditions, and rituals and celebrates diversity by recognizing and embracing a variety of ethnic backgrounds and traditions.
Ages 13 mos. to 4 years

Summer camp enrichment specialists, special events, weekly themes
Kol Ami’s dynamic and exciting enrichment programs fall into three categories; Enrichment Specialists, Trips & Center Events and Outdoor Fun & Play. Enrichment Specialists frequently visit Kol Ami to lead various activities, while older children are further engaged with field trips to nearby locations. Center Events are frequently focused on a holiday or celebratory occasion. Outdoor Fun & Play is a critical component of the FELS philosophy, and all of our center playgrounds have dedicated outdoor space. At Kol Ami, we’re particularly proud of our well-cultivated nature garden!
Skilled specialists visit our center to provide engaging activities for all children. Some of these include music, yoga, gymnastics, languages, and soccer.
Trips & Center Events
Older children visit museums and arboretums, take in theater performances and more. All children take part in special events that are brought to our center.
