Social emotional skills development Our curriculum integrates social development through the lens of Torah. Additionally, our two school psychologists provide programs to support friendship development, positive behavior, bullying prevention, and more.
Math skills development Our STEM program begins in preschool through center based learning that brings math concepts to life. The use of early childhood specific curriculum enhanced by technology provides hands-on learning that solidifies number concepts. Moving into early elementary school these skills are further enhanced through the use of common core and Singapore math based curriculum and other math programs that allow the transition from learning about math to real life application.
Speech development Our highly individualized program builds skills for each child based on their needs.
Reading skills development Pre-reading and reading skills are introduced in preschool when a child shows interest. Our developmentally appropriate curriculum is utilized in class and with our early childhood reading specialist. In early elementary school these skills are further developed through leveled reading groups and a vast array of reading curriculum and assessments.
Typical day and activities Students begin each day with an assembly followed by prayer. Center based STEM learning, journal writing and special classes follow. Specialties in early childhood include: Spanish, dance, kiddo kenetics, music and a weekly Shabbat Assembly. STEM based learning is enhanced with learning about the weekly parshas, Jewish holidays and conversational Hebrew. Early reading is supported by our reading specialist.

Parent involvement details We have an active PTSA that encourages parental involvement in our school. Parents have access to a Parent Portal where they can easily track homework, grades, long term projects, and the like. The portal also provides frequent communication between teachers and families. We have a weekly e-newsletter that keep parents abreast of school developments and social opportunities.
Approach to addressing and preventing bullying We teach students about what behavior is acceptable and what is not. Our religious studies curriculum imbues right and from wrong in and of itself. Beyond that, our two school psychologists visit our classrooms and provide programs to prevent bullying, develop friendships, and understand school expectations. Parents are also taught about school expectations so there is continuity between home and school.
