We pride ourselves on our “Whole Child” approach to Early Childhood Education - we strengthen each of our children socially, emotionally, intellectually, and physically, while challenging them to reach past their potential. Our caring staff members are professionals in their field and are devoted to creating a warm and nurturing environment where staff and families work alongside one another to cultivate creativity and independence. Staff is regularly provided with professional development to stay abreast of their field and to offer your child with new and exciting experiences to enrich their experience.

We provide play-based, child-directed learning in our state-of-the-art classrooms, and focus on infusing our values-based curriculum with Jewish values and traditions, while fostering a lifelong love of learning! We’ll discover and explore:

  • Literacy Skills
  • Beginning Math Skills
  • Art
  • Technology
  • Science
  • The Natural World
  • Movement and Exercise
  • Hebrew Enrichment
  • Music
  • Healthy Lifestyles
  • Values and Responsibility
