Kol Tikvah preschool is committed to providing a safe, loving and enriching environment. We promote each child's social, emotional, creative, academic and physical development through an anti-bias curriculum. We welcome family and community participation. Our Religious School translates our ideals and aspirations into concrete programs and activities. We at Kol Tikvah, our Director of Education, Teachers, Specialists, Rabbi, Cantor and Education Committee, are striving to help our children develop positive attitudes toward their Jewishness, to give them a sense of commitment to their tradition and to the practices of American Reform Judaism. We have two jobs to do as Jewish educators: A) We have to teach our children to love being Jewish and being around "Jewishness". B) We have to teach our children Jewish content. If we don't do A), however, we cannot do B). Our School wants to work with your entire family. We see our task as empowering you to help your children, indeed your whole family to live more meaningful Jewish lives. We believe that positive Jewish memories and meaningful Jewish experiences are created when school and home act in partnership toward this shared goal. By working together, our school is better able to provide those experiences which will effect your childıs life. You may access the resources and experience of our faculty and staff as you continue to experience Judaism in your home. Through cooperation, family supporting school and school supporting family, we can teach our children that Jewish living is an important part of all of our lives, and that we want Jewish values to be an important part of theirs as well. Temple Kol Tikvah Religious School supports students in forming their Jewish identity through the teaching of Jewish heritage, culture and values, along with Hebrew, prayer and the cycles of Jewish life. The Religious School provides an opportunity for fellowship and friendship in an environment that welcomes and nurtures students and families, and encourages active participation.
