Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our philosophy is based on the concept that children learn as they play. Our school offers a warm, creative, environment where each child's own unique style of living and learning is valued and nurtured. The foundation of personality, self-image and the motivation to learn are all firmly established in the first five years of a child's life. Our school gives the tools, space and support for the kinds of experiences children need to learn and grow. The school's rich and meaningful program of Jewish content is offered at the children's level, encouraging a positive identification with our religion, culture and people.
