Our preschool curriculum follows the Montessori method, where the children practice basic skills themselves, at their own pace.


Montessori education is fundamentally a model of human development, and an educational approach based on that model. The model has two basic elements. First, children … engage in psychological self-construction by means of interaction with their environments. Second, children, especially under the age of six, have an innate path of psychological development. Based on her observations, [Maria] Montessori believed that children at liberty to choose and act freely within an environment prepared according to her model would act spontaneously for optimal development.


We also have daily lessons in music, science, art, the yearly calendar, math, and yoga.  


The Jewish holidays and traditions, daily morning prayers, Torah morals, and the Hebrew alphabet are taught daily using the Montessori and other teaching methods. These important lessons are absorbed by the children and remembered for years.

​Jewish Studies

Our children are exposed to a rich and meaningful Jewish program consisting of Jewish holidays and traditions, daily morning prayers, Shabbat, Bible stories and blessings. These important lessons are absorbed by the children and remembered for years after.



Using the Montessori Method, innovative teaching materials, and games our students begin to learn the Hebrew alphabet and language.
