Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

We have small classes and assistant so we can differentiate and work with individual students on their level and meet individual needs.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

It is our goal to foster a child's growth in a safe and and nurturing environment. At LCDS we teach and model Jewish values like kindness and respect for self and others. We are a pluralistic school that welcomes diversity in terms of Jewish affiliations and observances. We also have a student body that is diverse economically and in terms of country of origin; our parent body represents family origins from over 22 countries.

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

LCDS has a well-defined curriculum for ECD that is published and available to parents and new applicants. Teachers communicate with parents on an informal basis throughout the week; there are two formal conferences yearly. In addition, we have numerous opportunities for parents to come to school-wide or grade specific activities like our beautiful, musical welcoming-the-Sabbath celebration every Friday morning.
There is an openhouse for parents to meet teachers and hear about the plan for the year early in the fall.


Separation is Handled through:

  • Pre-entry meetings with parents at school
  • Parents in classroom early on
