Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The goal of the Adath Jeshurun Pre-School and Kindergarten is to provide our children with a warm, loving atmosphere to promote their physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development. A.J.'s Pre-School welcomes families of all ethnic, racial, and religious backgrounds. Our program is directed to help the child develop observation, questioning and listening skills.
We emphasize development of Jewish awareness through the teaching of brachot (blessings), customs, values, music, Shabbat (Sabbath) and holiday celebrations.
Our modern fully-equipped classrooms aid in obtaining our goal of facilitating the highest possible levels of achievement. A painting area, doll and housekeeping area, block center, and work areas are just a few of the offerings. Spacious grounds, which encompass two state-of-the-art playgrounds, an indoor play area, and two auditoriums, provide unlimited enjoyment for our young ones.
As a member of the United Synagogues of Conservative Judaism, Congregation Adath Jeshurun is committed to the ideals of learning about the dignity and beauty of our Jewish heritage. Adath Jeshurun Pre-School and Kindergarten follows an academic year of approximately 170 school days. On days school is closed, we offer daycare hours (except on Jewish and legal holidays).
