About the Provider

Description: With a staff that constantly strives to be sensitive to the unique physical, emotional, social and intellectual needs of each child, the curriculum is guided by the principle that children learn most effectively through play. The program is particularly designed to teach students critical basic socialization skills such as how to share, how to be friends, how to be loyal, how to be a good citizen, how to have good manners, and how to work in groups. Activities also are chosen to stimulate children's senses and to help them develop their language as well as their gross and fine motor skills. Additionally, older children are introduced to early academic concepts such as the alphabet, reading, writing, and arithmetic. Jewish themes are interwoven into all programs - in music through weekly sessions with the Cantor and other musical activities, in the telling of bible stories, and in the celebration of Jewish holidays and Shabbat through arts and crafts projects, song, dance, and food.
