From September to early June, we help children 18 months through 5 years begin to discover their identity. Here, children’s play is their work. Children’s learning is a process where activities stimulate all areas of development simultaneously. Learning by doing – recognizing a beginning, middle and end to activities, discovering the connections between action and effect, symbol and substance – is fundamental to our philosophy of learning. Jewish values taught, open to ALL families.
