Kindergarten


Kindergarten is about learning through exploration and learning through doing. Promoting a love of learning, we engage our kindergarteners in a wide range of activities to nurture intellectual and social/emotional growth. They spend a full day in activities covering all curricular areas. Special events include our Buddy Program and our special Shabbat Assembly.
