Our Classrooms

Our class environments are divided by ages.  However, we put much more emphasis on developmental readiness than age.  We strive to place each child where he/she is going to have the most developmental success.

We believe the foundation of Judaism and its traditions are built for children and their families during the preschool years. Our children experience Hebrew language throughout their curriculum as they develop.

Infant Class (6 weeks - 1 year),
Butterflies (Kitah Parparim)

Our teachers spend quality time cuddling and talking to your baby to instill trust, and provide a healthy early learning  environment for movement, exploration, and communication.

Our play area is filled with opportunities to develop cognitive, fine and gross motor, socialization and language skills.

Our Parent Educator Specialist (PES) works with our parents to provide child developmental knowledge to encourage balance of home and school.

Together they develop the child's daily schedule including nap, play and bottle times.

Toddler Class (1-2 year olds), Fish (Kitah Dagim)

Here, chil­dren dip their toes in water­col­ors, poke their fin­gers in clay, and dig the earth. The Toddler Program encourages your child’s natural curiosity in a fun and active learning environment. Teachers plan daily activities both indoors and out to encourage eager investigation of the world.

 

2-3 year olds, Duck Class (Kitah Barvaz)

Surrounded by friends, children joy­fully dis­cover the rhythm of learning at school. Children learn that the small­est hands are capable of amazing things. Days are filled with stories, outside play, singing, and mak­ing glo­ri­ous messes.

Goals include the continued development of socialization and independence in a nurturing environment, and integration of family and school within a Jewish context. Additionally, the program helps the children form a positive Jewish self-image, while providing stimuli and opportunities for social, cognitive, and intellectual growth.

3-5 year olds, Koala / Panda Class
(Kitah Koala / Kitah Panda)

Every day we learn something new! 3-6 year olds spend their days creating deep connections to Jewish values with everything they do and become lifelong learners. 

A typical morning…
* Engage in construction, sensory, and imaginative play
* Share experiences and collaborate ideas
* Explore scientific method and reasoning 
* Practice independent life skills (for example, cleaning up, dressing, and problem solving)

Every Moment is a Jewish Moment

Jewish values, Jewish holidays, Israeli dancing and culture, are integrated throughout the curriculum every day. Community wide celebrations are scheduled throughout the school year. Hebrew is introduced in the classroom informally through songs, movement and games.
