Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Whether it’s counting apples for Rosh
HaShana or baking matza for Passover,
we believe children learn by doing.
The Rae and Joseph Gann Beth El
Preschool of Newton offers a loving and
supportive atmosphere for children to
grow. We foster self-esteem and independence
as well as Jewish identity
and pride at an early age.
We encourage children to observe, explore
and ask questions. While respecting
the uniqueness of each child we
teach the value of cooperation.
Through a balance of structured and
unstructured activities we help each
child to develop his or her cognitive,
emotional, social and physical skills
within a nurturing Jewish framework.
