We are dedicated to the development of the whole child

A well-rounded curriculum will enhance your child’s social, emotional, physical and cognitive growth. Each curriculum is creatively designed to meet the varied needs of a particular age group as well as those unique needs of individual children. Our goal is for each child to reach his/her maximum potential.

Math skills, reading readiness skills, music, art, health and physical fitness, social awareness, hands on science and Jewish programming will all be an integral part of your child’s nursery school experience.

Our Facility

Our modern state-of-the-art facility consists of spacious, colorful classrooms, each designed with both rug and floor areas, child sized furniture, and developmentally appropriate learning materials. Our building is completely air conditioned. Our full time maintenance staff keeps the rooms clean and sanitary. Our nap room has child size cots and most of our rooms are equipped with sinks.

We have an indoor playroom for inclement weather, as well as a very large outdoor playground divided into three sections by age. All playgrounds are fenced in and have safety surfaces. We have a large multi-purpose room for gym time and other large group activities.

All classes use a homeroom app to communicate with parents (notes, pictures, video).

Our programs are planned in terms of the needs of each child. A well-balanced program of indoor and outdoor activities is provided. Morning and afternoon sessions are divided into free play, clean up, snack, teacher-organized activities, rest and activity periods.
