Early Childhood Program & Preschool
Parents often begin a new path of discovering God and Judaism when they give it to their children. Let us share this personal journey as you pave this new path to find meaning, connection and continuity. Join other parents with young children in diverse activities throughout the year. Worship (child-friendly and developmentally appropriate!), learn (adult time), and play!! Meet others who share your journey to begin to build friendships for you and your children that will last a lifetime. All paths lead to Meaning, Connection and Continuity.
For further information, please check this website frequently or contact Shelley Hedrick for information or to share ideas for programs!! She can be reached by e-mail at email@example.com or by phone at 913-663-3495.
We strive to create programs responsive to the needs and wishes of families with young children. Please email or call so that we can be creative together!
Welcome to B’nai Jehudah Preschool!
Our creative, loving, dedicated staff and our involved, supportive parents have earned us an excellent reputation. We are deeply committed to providing experiences that simultaneously nurture and challenge your children during their preschool years. The messages and memories of these years provide the foundation for future learning, not only in the skills that are acquired, but also in the self esteem that is built. True self esteem, we believe, comes from competency.
Our goal is to understand each child and to provide opportunities to develop cognitive and social skills that are appropriate and challenging in an atmosphere rich with Judaic values and tradition.
Because of the profound influence of early learning experiences, we take our responsibility very seriously. We model positive behaviors to help our children become kind, helpful and diligent members of our community.
Ultimately our success relies on developing mutual respect and trust between school and home. Open communication is the key to assuring that we work together to accomplish our shared mission of providing the finest early childhood experience possible.
We would be honored to share this journey with your family.
For further information, please contact Shelley Hedrick at firstname.lastname@example.org or 913-663-3495.
