Early Childhood Programs

Early Childhood Programs

Please checkout our re-opening options and upcoming programs for our little ones here.

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:

18 – 35 month Old’s Program

Our toddler and mini-school programs are available to children 18 – 35 months old by August 31st. We have a half-day option from 9:00-12:00 two, three or five days a week. Toilet training is not required.
