Rose Family Early Childhood Education Center

Rose Family Early Childhood Education Center

Our early childhood education center provides a warm and loving setting, where children learn through hands-on, concrete experiences.

Your child will develop confidence, a sense of self-worth and pride as a member of our preschool family. We strive to help children develop a love of Judaism, an understanding of Jewish values and Jewish holidays through developmentally appropriate experiences.

Our Goals

Our Programs



We’ve developed a curriculum where each child can progress at his or her own pace. In our caring and accepting environment, your son or daughter can achieve his or her maximum potential.

Our curriculum includes a wide variety of academic subjects, social and physical activities because we want our children to experience success each day. Children enjoy music, art projects, dramatic play, and activities to encourage gross and fine motor development, circle time, computers, science and cooking.

Our program encourages children to experience the positive values of Judaism, within a conservative synagogue. Every week, our Rabbi joins the children for weekly storytelling and singing.

We offer programs for four age groups, geared to the developmental level of those children:
