Our preschool welcomes children ages two to four. The school year begins the last week in August and runs through the first week in June. Our hours are from 7:00 am until 6:00 pm. Part-time options are available.
For the Twos class, the ratio of teachers to children is 1:6 with a maximum of 12 children per class. For the Threes and Fours classes, the ratio of teachers to children is 1:10 with an average of 16 children per class.
Preschool is a time of enormous advances, and our developmentally-appropriate curriculum supports children as they acquire skills. Our focus is on personal and social, language, cognitive, physical, and creative development. Children are encouraged to become self aware and to relate to other children and adults, to express thoughts and ideas, and to explore and learn mathematical and scientific concepts. They use and develop large and small muscles as they play outdoors or indoors every day. Pre-reading opportunities enable children to acquire skills necessary for kindergarten. Because art supplies are always available, children have the opportunity to create art related to their interests, seasons, holidays, and scientific concepts. Children also experience Judaism and Jewish life through songs, stories, and hands-on projects.
