Our preschool classes are designed for children 2 ½ to 5 years of age (must be toilet trained). The program provides a wide variety of developmental experiences. Daily activities are led by a qualified teacher and an assistant in each group of 16 to 18 children. In our activity centers, decision making, social interaction, imaginative play, perception and fine-motor skills are developed as your child chooses and explore materials according to his or her needs.
Children enjoy weekly music, swim, gym, library, computers, science and cooking. Celebration of Jewish holidays, traditions and values are all part of the curriculum. There also are many unique activities, such as intergenerational programs and visits from storytellers and safety experts. Children have opportunities to play on CDC age-appropriate playgrounds and to explore nature on our outdoor trails.
Preschool also is a time for growing intellectually. Circle time, stories, songs, finger plays and discussions help children develop listening, comprehension, memory and language skills. Hebrew words, songs and arts-and-crafts are introduced. As your child’s skills develop, new experiences are added to help your child grow. Morning snack, afternoon snack, and lunch are provided by us.
