The Early School - Successful Learning In An Innovative Educational Environment

The Early School is a child’s first formal learning experience involving progressive development in which each level has its own age-specific program and goals. Our overriding objective is to provide an educational and emotional foundation for success when entering kindergarten.

Our professional staff believes that children are unique individuals and by building on each child’s strengths and abilities, all children will be successful learners.

Offering a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) based comprehensive early childhood curriculum, all programs are open to members and nonmembers.  Our learning hubs are dedicated spaces for a variety of opportunities to use their developing mental and physical skills. They include a newly-dedicated Magna-Tile Room donated by our Parents' Council. 

We offer before and after care hours for your child with our professional staff.

Celebrating Jewish holidays and preparing for Shabbat; becoming familiar with Jewish symbols; reciting appropriate blessings over snacks; and teaching Jewish values in an age-appropriate way are integral parts of our educational landscape.
