Stay Active 


Babies need exercise and should be active during the day doing things like rolling, crawling and going outdoors. Staying active with your young children is beneficial to them, and to you. Learn about various programs and initiatives in the Jewish community that will keep you and your little ones moving.


Child Care


Throughout our community, child care providers offer a uniquely Jewish environment that instills social and cultural values, while providing a stimulating environment for young hearts and minds. Below you will find a list of daycares that will help your children to thrive. With daycare spaces in high demand, it is best to enroll your child (or anticipated child) as early as possible.

Jewish Education  


Our Jewish future begins with accessible and affordable Jewish education and engaged, passionate leaders. Throughout Winnipeg, many opportunities exist for young people to connect with their heritage and find meaning through diverse and enriching Jewish learning.
