Welcome to the JCC Nursery
School Parents Association!

We are Barbara Piermont and Blaire Cahn Rozansky, your Parents Association (PA) co-chairs for the 2019-2020 school year. This is Barbara’s second year and Blaire’s third at the Saul and Carole Zabar Nursery School. Barbara and her husband, Jeffrey, have two sons, Oliver and Preston. Blaire and her husband, Gregg, have two girls, Ella and Amelia. Both Oliver and Ella are in the Pre-K program, and hopefully their younger siblings will follow them at the nursery school next year.

The nursery school has become enormously important to us and our families over the last few years, and we are eager to help create that experience for others. The JCC offers everything that we were looking for in a school for our children—a warm and nurturing environment rooted in Jewish culture and traditions, a strong teaching staff, passionate administrators, and a vibrant and engaged community of parents.

We are lucky to have such a strong and active parent body. With over 25 PA–sponsored events throughout the year, each family can find a way to be a part of our community. This is an inclusive environment with a place for everyone. It is our hope that you will join us at events, attend PA meetings, and volunteer when possible. We are dedicated to making all of these experiences meaningful and fulfilling for you and your family.

Additionally, because the nursery school is just one part of the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan, our children’s first school experience is about so much more than just the nursery school. There are family programs through The Bert and Sandra Wasserman Center for Family Life, extracurricular classes, and opportunities to explore Jewish life and values through The Center for Jewish Living. Being a nursery school family opens you up to so many opportunities to grow, connect, and have fun during your time as a nursery school parent... and long after.

We look forward to getting to know you this year. Please reach out to us with any questions, issues, suggestions, requests for ways to get involved in the PA, or just to say hello.

We are excited for a great year!
