  • Our highly qualified staff create a preschool experience filled with learning and exploration as they teach children through song, dance, dramatic play and art.
  • Children also enjoy free play indoors and outdoors on our beautiful playground each day and go on community field trips throughout the year.
  • Reading readiness activities are emphasized to prepare the children for Kindergarten.
  • The Kindergarten through 1st Grade program features a well rounded General and Jewish Studies Curriculum, covering Language Arts, Math Skills, Science, Social Studies, Jewish Holidays & Concepts, Hebrew, Parsha and Prayer.
