Overview of Programs
Beth El Preschool offers fun, stimulating and engaging learning opportunities for children ages 15 months to five years. Our developmentally appropriate, child focused classes center on
the following six areas of curriculum: Approaches to Learning & Play; Language Development; Cognitive Development/Academic Readiness; Health & Physical Development; Social-Emotional Development; and Judaism & Spirituality. We provide a balanced program that includes individual, small group and large group activities; free and structured play choices; and a mix of teacher directed and child initiated activities. Judaism is infused into all of our classrooms regularly, with a schoolwide focus on holidays, Shabbat and tikkun olam (repairing the world).
