Now Registering for Nursery School

Categories: Events,News

Registration is open the 2017-18 school year for Beth Israel Nursery School!

The Beth Israel Nursery School Program incorporates art, movement and music, stories, writing and dramatic play, Smart Boards, a playground built on a sandbox and an organic garden that is “farmed” by the children. The Handwriting Without Tears program is a cornerstone of literacy development and employs multisensory tools to help students succeed. The children also are taught about Jewish holidays in hands-on activities that range from making their own challah bread to participating in a weekly Shabbat program with Rabbi David M. Weis. Small class sizes and personalized attention are a hallmark of the program.

New this year is “Beth Israel Babies,” a Mommy & Me program for children under two years old, beginning in the fall. Nursery school is open to children ages 2 to 5, and kindergarten enrichment is available.

“Importantly, we provide a warm, nurturing environment to encourage children to explore, create and learn,” said Feldman. “We build literacy and mathematics skills at an appropriate developmental level that allows students to celebrate their achievements, rather than be pressured to perform. Our program provides the scaffolding that will allow these children to excel in elementary school and beyond.”

Students are grouped by developmental level: 2-year-old, 3-year-old, 4-year-old, and kindergarten enrichment classes. They may attend the program two, three or five days per week. Before and after care also are offered.

Class size is limited, and enrollment for the 2016-17 term is currently under way. For more information or to register your child, contact Cookie Feldman at (609) 641-3600 or
