Shenker Academy

  • The Shenker Academy uses the Multiple Intelligence Theory, created by Dr. Howard Gardner.
  • This innovative educational theory defines eight different intelligences or strengths that we all possess.
  • Our learning environment encourages children to explore and exercise all of the eight intelligences with hands-on, multi-sensory activities.
  • The daily lesson plans are designed so each child can develop independent thinking skills, creativity and higher levels of problem-solving.
  • The Preschool and Kindergarten programs promote and develop confidence and individual expression in each child.
  • Hebrew, Spanish and Sign Language are a part of the curriculum.
  • Our Teachers are experienced, trained and certified early childhood professionals.
  • The Academy maintains low student-teacher ratios, allowing for individualized learning in a safe, nurturing environment.
  • The learning environment is filled with developmentally appropriate toys and learning materials, giving the children opportunities to learn through the eight intelligences.
  • Our teachers plan daily activities to encourage the children's creativity, socialization, independent thinking and problem-solving skills.
  • The Shenker Academy is a non-denominational Preschool and Kindergarten. Our Kindergarten is licensed by the Clark County School District.
