From the Director:
Children learn by exploring, doing, and practicing. The play space is organized into different activity areas that invite and encourage investigation and discovery in the many areas of the curriculum. The curriculum is very broad-based. Children participate in drama, art projects, science and discovery, math, problem solving, creative thinking, and literacy activities. Visiting specialists teach music and creative movement, and special activities are provided to help children develop fine and large motor skills. Time is provided each day for the children to play in the school's private playground, which is specifically designed for preschoolers. The program is designed to encourage social and emotional development and to incorporate experiences and activities that focus on the children's particular interests and needs. Judaic teaching is an intrinsic part of the school's curriculum and is woven into every aspect of the children's experience and learning. The children also learn about Judaism, Shabbat, and holidays through stories, song, and dance. KINS will provide your toddler or preschool child with a warm, engaging, high quality program, which prepares children for the social-emotional and intellectual demands of their future education while providing families with a uniquely caring, Jewishly-diverse community.
