Core Programs

Turning Two

Tuesdays and Thursdays
9:15–11:00 am
February–June

Designed to meet the needs of young children, Turning Two introduces learners to a school environment and a “separated” pre-school experience. Within an intimate setting, toddlers  are encouraged to socialize, develop independence and a sense of self, and increase their communication skills.

Twos

Three or five mornings per week
9:00–11:45 am

Children in the 2’s are introduced to the school by nurturing teachers who work closely with families to gain each child’s trust and to create a sense of community as they transition from the home environment to school. The focus is on successful separation, independence, socialization, fine/gross motor skills, and language development. Children learn through the use of sensory materials, hands-on experiences, and daily gym/outdoor play. Music and cooking are regular features and are incorporated into the celebration of Jewish holidays.

Threes

Five mornings per week
9:00 am–1:00 pm 

Tailored for the interests and developmental abilities of three- to four-year-olds, our 3’s curriculum focuses on learning and growth in the areas of cognitive, physical, social, and emotional development. We focus on cooperative and dramatic play, language enrichment, and positive social interaction. Jewish holidays and traditions are celebrated and integrated into the learning and play.

Parents may also elect to send their children to any of our extended-day classes offered weekly, Monday through Friday 1:00–2:30 pm. Registration for the extended day classes is contingent upon registration.

Pre-K

Five mornings per week
Monday through Friday 9:00 am–2:30 pm

As children turn four and five, they become more analytical in their thinking and are able to express their learning in a representational manner. We encourage kindergarten readiness by providing a strong foundation, emphasizing a multi-sensory approach to language (including exposure to printed materials, story-telling, phonemic awareness, and rhyming), problem solving, and cooperative learning experiences. Jewish values are incorporated into the daily curriculum as children learn about holidays and traditions, mitzvot (commandments) and tikkun olam (healing the world). Our experienced teachers support children according to their individual developmental needs, and units of study often span many weeks as students explore areas of the curriculum in groups or individually to gain deeper understanding.
