Board of Directors

BJEP is governed by a Board of Directors who oversee the organization’s educational philosophy, curriculum, budgeting, and ensure good governance.   Participation on the board enables decision making that frames our children’s experiences, cultivates our BJEP community, and ensures generations of children will benefit from our program. We value your opinions and expertise, in whatever way you want to contribute.  Get in touch to schedule time for a chat:  bjepboard @ gmail.com.

Covid-safe Guidelines Committee:  we are grateful to all parents who have taken part in the development of our Brandeis and BJEP Covid-safe guidelines during Summer 2021, in advance of our return to the Brandeis campus.  Takes a village…!
