Schiff Preschool of Temple Emanu-El – Jewish Preschool – Dunwoody – Sandy Springs

schiff-preschoolLearn • Grow • Connect


The Schiff Preschool provides a nurturing environment where children feel safe to try new things, discover their own potential, and explore decision-making and problem solving.

Our curriculum is based on the understanding that children learn best by doing. Playing is how children learn. During their time here, we engage students’ senses to stimulate creative learning through touching, listening, smelling, looking, tasting, and feeling.

Our educational environment incorporates Jewish values, beliefs and traditions, as well as history and culture. Our goal is to begin a lifelong process of Judaic learning and enrichment for our students.

The preschool program’s mission includes:

  • Creating a positive sense of Jewish identity among our students
  • Developing a sense of community between families and Temple Emanu-El
  • Successfully preparing children for their continuing academic growth
