Welcome to Aaron Milken Center. We pride ourselves on being the place that families join to feel nurtured and cared for, a community that celebrates the journey and growth of the individual and shows gratitude for our Judaism and all of its lessons as we pass it along to the next generation.

At Aaron Milken Center, we know that children are born competent and capable. It is our role to provide a thought provoking, wondrous and challenging environment that allows the children the room to express themselves and feel confident in their learning. We nurture their social and emotional development, as well as their critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Framed within the context of our Jewish tradition, we promote creative exploration in a dynamic learning environment to establish a strong foundation of curiosity, learning and Jewish values. We ask of our children what we would ask of anyone—to explore the world with joy and intention, to act with integrity and to treat one another with kindness, to be a global citizen.

admissions process

The first step in applying to the Aaron Milken Center Early Childhood is to schedule a tour. Your tour will include time to discuss our philosophy, curriculum, and to take a walk through our beautiful campus to visit classrooms and our expansive yards. We recommend you make childcare arrangements for young children, as we want you to focus all your attention on learning about our school and getting your individual questions answered. A tour typically lasts about one hour.
