Preschool - for 2 - 5 year olds
The core of our preschool program is based on the belief that each child is competent and capable. Children, as natural learners, are full of potential and are guided to explore and question their environment in order to engage in authentic learning. We incorporate Creative Curriculum, a national research-based program which enhances children’s experiences through high-quality materials, training programs, developmental assessment, staff development and resources for parents. In our school, the integration of a Jewish expression of values and weekly Shabbat celebration also enhances the learning experience.
Activities enriching the classroom experiences include sessions with our specialists in swimming, physical education, music, art, and movement.
In an effort to connect the experiences between the children’s home and school life, we strive to nurture positive parent relationships. We encourage parental participation in our classroom activities, as well as involvement in our very active Parent Committee.
The comprehensive learning program of the JCC is moving beyond our walls in Scotch Plains to create a small, intimate 2s program at Temple Beth-El Mekor Chayim in Cranford.
