Encouraging Creativity & Problem Solving

We encourage children to express themselves creatively through art, dance, music, and language. Children?s pro-social development is supported by fostering skills in recognizing feelings, resolving conflict, and problem solving.

Staff and families partner together building a bridge between school and home to create the most meaningful learning experience for each child.

Imaginative, Multisensory Curriculum

We offer a developmentally appropriate multisensory curriculum providing experiences in imaginative play, stories and discussions, cooking, music, block building, small and large motor activities, science and math, and art.

Learning to Respect Each Other and Our Environment

The children learn respect of and for each other, the environment, and other people. Our curriculum supports an anti-bias, and multicultural philosophy to reflect our family population and the world around us.

Discovery and the 'Whole Child'

In all of our activities, our attention is on the process and pleasure of discovery. Our emphasis is on the development of the ?whole child?, and on the enhancement of each child?s positive self-concept. We foster a non-competitive environment to enable each child to become self-directed.

Children Celebrate the Jewish Holidays

As part of our Jewish cultural tradition and heritage, we celebrate the Jewish Holidays and Shabbat with songs, stories, special foods and traditions. We incorporate Jewish Values into our curriculum throughout the entire year.
