Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our program encourages physical, intellectual, emotional and social growth. Numerous activities focus on Jewish holidays, Shabbat, customs and traditions. Your child will learn by experimenting, exploring and observing. The curriculum includes arts and crafts, music, science activities, reading readiness, computers, field trips and free play with cognitive toys. In addition, we have a number of enrichment programs that include regular sessions with a music specialist, an aerobics program, a drama program, and other special activities. Indoor and outdoor play help develop motor skills and physical growth.

For two and three year old children, the emphasis is on social development. Four and five year old children learn pre kindergarten basics. Positive self image, independence and feelings of camaraderie are encouraged in all classes. At NVHC Preschool, your child will make friends with other Jewish children in a secure and comfortable setting.
