Our program is directed to help the child develop observation, questioning and listening skills.
We emphasize development of Jewish awareness through the teaching of brachot (blessings), customs, values, music, Shabbat (Sabbath) and holiday celebrations.
Our modern fully-equipped classrooms aid in obtaining our goal of facilitating the highest possible levels of achievement.
