Our Teaching Philosophy


Our curriculum is founded upon the richness of Judaic tradition and values and is deeply inspired by the theories and philosophies of the schools of Reggio Emilia, Italy. This cutting edge philosophy of early learning maintains a strong focus on children’s academic development through an approach that fosters a love for literacy, math and science. Each day we provide opportunities for social, emotional, physical and cognitive growth that prepare children for kindergarten readiness. In our small class sizes, children develop research, inquiry and critical thinking skills. Children construct meaning from their learning environments which seamlessly blend the richness of Jewish values, traditions and holiday celebrations into our early childhood education.

All our families have access to an unparalleled facility and all the benefits of the entire Merage JCC, including indoor and outdoor athletic facilities, swimming pools and spacious grounds.

Through creative hands-on experiences, our children embark on a journey from home to kindergarten. Our programs are designed and based upon the most recent research in brain development and are founded upon cutting edge child development.

We know that children learn and progress as they grow and develop new skills and ways of thinking and perceiving. In our state-of-the-art classrooms, our children are encouraged to embark on an exploration of concepts, gain awareness and understanding of literacy and numeracy, and become more articulate, confident individuals.
