BABY N ME: up to 2 years old
PLEASE NOTE: We reserve the right to cancel any class if minimum enrollment is not met
A parent-child class for children up to 2 years old during the school year.
This parent/child class meets once a week on Wednesdays from 9:15am-10:45 a.m. and Fridays 10:00am-11:30am. Children and parents enjoy free play, music and creative experiences together in a warm, safe environment. Children become familiar with the idea of preschool and the Shirlee Green Preschool environment. Parents have the opportunity to experience time with their child as well as the chance to get to know parents of their child’s future classmates.
This class serves as the introduction to a child's Jewish journey as young as 6 weeks old. K'tanim staff assesses each child's developmental milestones at 6 months and 12 months. Three goals achieved for transition to M'Tukim are walking independently, eating food by hand independently, and some form of communication (ie; vocal or sign).
M’tukim provides children with an opportunity to socialize in a warm, safe environment without the presence of their parents. These children, along with their teachers, enjoy music, art, movement and Shabbat and begin to become familiar with school routine.
Age cut off date is August 1st of the upcoming school year.
Children in Ginnah begin socialization through play with an emphasis on awareness of self and others. Children experience gross and fine motor activities, music, art, creative movement and much more. We talk about the world around us, focus on our classroom community and introduce our wonderful Jewish holidays including Shabbat.
Children in T’zipporim focus on the increasing development of their social skills in group settings and their ability to expand their learning through play. The T’zipporim children explore emerging literacy, pre-math and communication skills. The children enjoy full participation in our Jewish holidays and Shabbat celebrations.
During their final year as Preschoolers the Chaverim children continue to improve upon their ability to interact with others in preparation for Kindergarten. Continued emphasis is placed on problem solving, categorizing and task completion. We help the children refine communication, fine motor and gross motor skills and continue to expand their abilities to be a part of a classroom community.
A full program of literacy, Jewish enrichment, science and pre-math includes developmentally appropriate activities such as cooking,and music. This special year serves as a wonderful stepping stone to Kindergarten.
