Early Childhood Specialists Cathy Rolland and Jenn Magalnick invite you to learn about JData.
The URJ is partnering with JData.com to offer leaders in our movement unprecedented high-quality, reliable and practical information. Through this central, online data management system, we will collect the accurate, current and focused data we need to support our movement's 300 early childhood centers.
Through our ongoing work to support you and the URJ early childhood centers, we have become keenly aware of the many challenges you face in your work. To surmount these challenges and move forward, we need accurate, current, focused information from our movement's 300 early childhood centers. This data will give us a clearer picture of the major issues facing our programs across North America and better position us to support you and your congregation moving forward.
To that end, we are delighted to announce that we have engaged in a partnership with JData.com, which is a groundbreaking online database offering Jewish educators across North America unprecedented high-quality, reliable and practical information. The system enables you to track your own early childhood center's information over time and to see at-large trends. JData will provide an immediate, data-informed view of the field of Reform early childhood centers, particularly regarding important issues such as participation in universal or voluntary pre-K programs.
In the coming days, you will receive detailed instructions from JData that will allow you to access and enter your information on its site. Participation in JData is easy, safe and important. We encourage congregational staff, clergy and leaders to work together to compile the most accurate and therefore most useful profile.
To learn more about the power of JData and how to start your online profile, sign up for JData's webinars for URJ Early Childhood directors. During the free webinar, you'll learn how to use the system; view online demonstrations about entering and accessing important information; and speak with JData and URJ team members.
