Right next door to South Miami in Coral Gables, The Margaux School at Temple Judea offers South Miami families exceptional daycare, preschool, and Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) programs.
Five minutes’ drive from the center of South Miami, The Margaux Early Childhood School has structured daycare programs for children from 18 months to about five years old. Children in the daycare programs at The Margaux School strengthen their vocabularies and social skills as they interact with teachers and other students. We also encourage them to communicate through dance, crafting, drawing, painting, singing, and other artistic means of expression.
The Margaux School is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), having undergone a rigorous evaluation and certification process. Very few early childhood education facilities hold this distinction, and The Margaux School is proud of the benefits that this level of excellence can bring to your child.
The Margaux Early Childhood School is part of Temple Judea, a Reform congregation established in 1948 and still a vibrant part of the Coral Gables community. Although we focus on teaching children fundamental reading- and math-readiness skills, as well as helping them grow their vocabularies, we believe that their vocabularies should include words of compassion and understanding.
At The Margaux School, we know it is never too early to instill children with a sense of the greater world around them. We are pleased to share our Judaic tradition with our school family, celebrating Shabbat and other holy days through songs, stories, and festive gatherings. We open our arms wide to respectfully embrace families of all traditions, origins, and beliefs.
