Rooted in our Jewish values and traditions, we empower our children, educators and families to be successful in life and learners for life.
We recognize that each child is a unique individual and we build a personal relationship to discover their needs, interests and capabilities.
Through curiosity and respect we create a co-constructivist environment where children and educators freely explore, experiment, question and research their ideas together.
Relationships are the building blocks of our school. It stems from the relationships formed among our educators, branches out from there to our children and their families. These relationships create and sustain a community between all facets of our school.
Our educators plan with intentionality, a program for each child that is well balanced, blending social, emotional and cognitive, and individual and group living.
We will educate our children and their families about the Jewish holidays, rituals, and Jewish values; encouraging each family to find a way to meaningfully incorporate them into their lives. We recognize that just as each child is unique, each family is unique in not only their make up, but their definition of being Jewish. We will create within our school and classroom a welcoming space to explore Judaism.
