K’tanim: Observant Jewish curriculum for 3 and 4-year-olds
The K'tanim class provides educational opportunities for Jewish children, providing a blend of developmentally appropriate activities for social, emotional, academic and physical growth in a traditional Jewish setting. Our class is centered on the Torah Umesorah Curriculum for Preschool. We stress the individual child and his or her enjoyment of the school day, building a positive foundation for future learning.
The curriculum incorporates davening, brachot, rituals and Hebrew language activities in combination with developmentally appropriate early childhood experiences. The K'tanim program runs 8:30am to 1pm with the opportunity to add afternoons from 1-3pm Monday-Thursday. In order to run the 1-3 program, a minimum of 5 children must be enrolled. K'tanim has a separate calendar that reflects religious Jewish holiday observances.
