We celebrate Shabbat weekly, often with Cantor Stanton, and Jewish values are woven throughout our curriculum. Jewish holidays are introduced to all our students through traditional foods, songs, and stories. Our play-based philosophy is known for sending students from our preschool to their kindergarten experience "ready to learn." Learn more about the importance of play HERE.
