Our Age-Specific Curriculum
Movers and Groovers
As your child enters the wonderful world of moving and grooving, their curiosity and independence soar. Our 6-18 months section provides a nurturing environment for children to explore, learn, and grow alongside their parents. With engaging activities, music and movement sessions, and holiday-themed celebrations, we create opportunities for families to bond, fostering a love for Judaism in a joyful and interactive manner. Through supportive discussions and guidance from experienced facilitators, parents gain insights into toddler development, behavior management techniques, and strategies for creating a balanced routine.
Toddlers (2-4 years)
Toddler years are filled with exciting adventures as children continue to discover their interests and personalities. Our toddler section is designed to stimulate their imaginations and promote early learning through play. From arts and crafts sessions to storytelling and Jewish cultural experiences, we provide a platform for children to embrace their heritage while developing essential skills. For parents, this section offers a supportive network to navigate the challenges of preschool years, including school readiness, socialization, and fostering a love for Jewish traditions.
