Play is how young children engage in and make sense of the world. We strive to engage our students in stimulating and developmentally-appropriate activities that speak to their social, emotional, moral, cognitive, physical, creative and spiritual selves. Classroom materials are carefully selected and we encourage our students to respect and care for their learning environment.

Our program follows a coordinated sequential pattern of instruction that includes language arts, math readiness, science and social studies, as well as art, music, and mindfulness. The schedule includes time for play, time for creativity, time to explore the environment and time to celebrate our Jewish and national heritage. Jewish values, customs, and holiday observances are integrated into our curriculum.
