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.
