Infant Room 6 weeks through 12 months
Monday-Friday, 7 am - 6 pm
Our newly designed infant room is a warm, inviting atmosphere where babies feel safe, secure, and happy. The caring and nurturing teachers engage babies in activities that lay the foundations for later learning in language, cognitive, motor skill and sensory development. Babies are appropriately integrated into our larger early childhood family and become accustomed to carriage rides throughout the building as well as joining the two year old classes for a weekly Shabbat program.


Music is a powerful force in developing an infant's emotional and linguistic development be it through soothing lullabies, rhyming stories or rhythmic activities. Soft background music is played all day in the infant room, along with regular music and movement sessions with Marcia Kratz, coordinator of Kids' MusicRound.

 


Toddler Room 12-18 months
Monday-Friday, 7 am - 6 pm
Children in our toddler program are at least one year old, fully walking and able to eat table food. With these new abilities, toddlers are ready for more stimulating and diverse activities. The young toddlers enjoy a day that still caters to their individual schedules, as they participate in regularly scheduled music, gym classes and a weekly Shabbat program.

At this age, toddlers are working hard doing things on their own, such as eating, playing and talking. These young walkers thrive on indoor and outdoor play, including walking and riding toys, toddler manipulatives, games, puzzles and story time. The classroom schedule provides for nap times, and will advance your child's social, physical, emotional, and intellectual growth.

 



Toddler Room 18-24 months
Monday-Friday, 7 am - 6 pm
This nurturing environment provides the structure that allows a toddler to grow and learn while feeling safe and comfortable. Children play and explore in a child-directed curriculum that integrates Judaic and academic learning appropriate for this age group while emphasizing growth in language, social, cognitive, and motor development. Children participate regularly in music, science and gym classes.
