Hours: 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday
We offer an engaging and nurturing Jewish environment for children 12 months-4 years. Early drop-off and and extended day options are available! Our program is based on the belief that young children construct knowledge of the world by actively engaging with their surroundings. In each classroom a team of teachers designs an environment that encourages children to experiment, discover and explore. Fostering a positive Jewish identity in young children is an integral component of our program. Whether it's learning how colors blend while finger-painting, counting the candles for the Chanukah menorah, or negotiating the sharing of toys in the sensory table, teachers help young children become active learners and part of a community. A successful school experience strengthens children's ability to be part of a group. As the children's social skills develop, they learn to become independent, responsible and cooperative members of a class. Our Early Childhood program embraces the entire family through family celebrations and parent education. The Early Childhood staff is dedicated to supporting parents with the many challenges and questions they face.
