A Jewish Montessori day school for ages 3 years old through third grade. We integrate Judaism with the Montessori method to give each child a comprehensive, hands-on learning experience catered to his/her unique strengths and talents. Each child works at their own pace, using specialized hands-on learning materials, with individual instruction from the teachers, in the way that works best for them. Our program includes a comprehensive Judaic and secular curriculum, as well as a special focus on kindness, respect, and care for each other and the world around us. Our unique classroom style fosters self-esteem, confidence, and a love of learning.

Jewish Enrichment Center

The Jewish Enrichment Center is a laboratory school that raises a child's voice in Jewish learning. Since 2011, we've run an independent Sunday and afterschool in Hyde Park, Chicago, where children are co-creators of Judaism. The Jewish Enrichment Center is recognized nationally as an exceptional model of deep, personalized Jewish children's learning. At the Jewish Enrichment Center, children ask questions, generate ideas, and bring Jewish texts to life for themselves. Using art and drama and clay, children dialogue with peers and with our ancient tradition, simultaneously growing their Jewish literacy as well as skills for critical and creative thinking and compassionate listening. Our environment teaches children to pursue dignity for all humanity. Now open for infant/toddlers through middle school.
