About the Provider

Description: The Sylvia Meisenberg Early Childhood Program embraces its youngest members through our comprehensive preschool curriculum. These programs offer a well-rounded, gentle introduction to formal education.

Our state licensed preschool school has classes for two, three and four year olds. Additionally we offer a wide range of enrichment activities such as art, music, and languages. We also have an extended day lunch program. Activities and celebrations for Shabbat and holidays are introduced, complementing a full program of direct instruction and “learn through play.” The theme-based curriculum places strong emphasis on social skills and school readiness. Our educated and experienced teachers maintain a warm and nurturing classroom environment, and we keep a low student to teacher ratio to ensure the success of all of our children.

ECP1Additional early childhood programs include “Parent/Child” classes for younger children, and a summer camp. Enrollment in all of our programs is open to the children of members and non-members. None of our classes require a child to be potty trained.
