Classes


At Adat Reyim Preschool we find child-initiated, child-directed, teacher-supported play is the most important component of our program, allowing children to grow physically, emotionally and socially.  Children learn to negotiate, share, cooperate and respects the rights of others.  Adat Reyim Preschool is influenced by the Reggio-Emilia Philosphy and has adopted this style of learning to fit our programs and encompass Jewish values. 


The preschool is open to to all children regardless of race, color, religion, nationality or ethnicity.  We acknowledge and respect the diversity of our children while emphasizing the values of family, community, caring, joy, tradition and rituals.


Transitional Twos

Children must be 24 months by January 1 to enroll in this class.  Children who are too young to attend preschool are welcome to join with their special adult - parent, grandparent, baby sitter.  The class meets Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30 - 11:00 and includes an art project, story time, music and play.  The class is led by an experienced teacher who helps prepare the children for coming to preschool independently.  

At the end of the session children can transition to the M/W/F Twos class, can continue in the Baby and Me Class or transition to a different preschool program.

Junior Kindergarten

This class is designed specifically as a fourth year preschool program.  It is appropriate for children who miss the cut-off for kindergarten by a few months or for those who will benefit from an additional year in a small class with attentive teachers and specialists.  School readiness is an integral part of the program and parents will be provided with on-going feedback about their child's growth and development.  We work with area schools to make sure our students have all the skills they need to thrive in their kindergarten class.
