Our school is licensed for 45 children with a staff/child ratio of better than one to eight ensuring that each child receives maximum attention. With an awareness of current research on early cognitive development, our teachers capitalize on the children’s interest in the world. They encourage fundamental skills that prepare children for further academics.
Language, music, imaginary play, fine and large motor experiences, pre-reading, and pre-math are all part of the curriculum as is dress-up, story time, and exploring the environment.
On our shaded outdoor yard, children run, climb, ride bikes, and build, as well as create their own games.
Our curriculum values process rather than product. Children choose from a multitude of art materials to express themselves freely and music sessions are enhanced with a keyboard, rhythm instruments, and creative body movement activities.
We introduce our Jewish heritage with music, art, food, stories, and dramatic play. On Mondays, we welcome the new week with a child-friendly Havdalah service and every Friday we visit the temple’s sanctuary with family and friends to celebrate Shabbat. Both Jewish and American holidays are enthusiastically observed, with our Chanukah activity day, Thanksgiving feast and Passover Model Seder being some of the major highlights of the school year.
