Temple Emanuel established the Temple Emanuel Preschool in 1971 to
serve the community. Throughout the years, it has continued to be a
leader in preschool education in the Denver metropolitan area. The
preschool has received a three star qualistar rating and is part of
the Denver Preschool Program. A committee comprised of parents of
preschool children, helps establish policy and plans programs for
the school. Jewish tradition places a high value on education. The
spirit of this heritage rests at the heart of Temple Emanuel
Preschool's philosophy. Temple Emanuel Preschool exposes our
children to the wonder of discovery and learning new things.
Ultimately the children will become their own teachers, seekers of
knowledge and understanding on their own terms. Our children will
develop an essential sense of their own self-worth. Through
independence and curiosity our children will attain their own
worthiness. These concepts are developed by feeling valued, having
a positive sense of Jewish identity, encouraging positive social
awareness and interaction, encouraging creativity, and offering
opportunities to develop gross motor, visual and auditory skills.
At the center of this intimate setting is a dedicated professional
staff. Teachers are well trained. Our emergent curriculum is
carefully planned. Each staff member knows that the primary
objective is to make the children feel that going to school is a
natural and exciting experience and that there is nothing quite so
wonderful as discovering something new.
