But thanks to the JCC Therapeutic Nursery, bumps in development (big or small) are handled with care and compassion at their Toddler Mommy & Me Socialization Group or Therapeutic Nursery Program and addressed using the best practices for helping kids within structured group activities with an emphasis on socialization and building communication and motor skills.
