Monday/Wednesday OR Tuesday/Thursday 9:30 – 11am

This is a year-long, gradual separation class designed to expose children to preschool and to provide a bridge between “classes” and school. Children are encouraged to explore, create and grow in a small, warm and nurturing community. Our experienced educators guide this process and design an age-appropriate curriculum that includes opportunities to develop skills across all areas of learning. An introduction to Jewish traditions, celebrations and holidays are carefully woven into the program.

A caregiver or parent must stay onsite during this class.

This program is open for children with birthdates from 9/1/2017 to 12/31/2017
