Under the enthusiastic guidance of our director Sara Losch, the Barnert Temple Preschool has helped children develop a lifelong love for learning.
While we continue to be a Jewish preschool teaching values of kindness, good deeds, and taking care of the world, we now accept children of all faiths and cultural backgrounds.
Becoming part of our preschool means you are part of a community.
We have beautiful park-like grounds including forest areas for exploration, a large multi-sensory playground, a working garden, and a mud kitchen.
For 30 years, we have consistently provided a nurturing and creative environment that allows children to discover their own unique learning style.
Our teachers, programs and overall philosophy also emphasize the need for children to develop the social skills necessary to be successful as they progress through their academic careers.
We want to emporwer out students to become critical thinkers and creative problem solvers.
All of these elements come together to provide our children with the programs and environment to grow academically, socially, creatively and spiritually.
