We have 6 classrooms at our center; 2 of each age group. Out of our 6 classrooms, 1 from each of the age groups has a Jewish component to the curriculum in which Jewish values are infused with activities throughout the day. The children are exposed to holidays that are relevant to the Jewish calendar, as well as to Jewish culture/life, values, ideas, and Hebrew vocabulary. The children learn about how to treat each other, the planet and about the cycle of the Jewish calendar.
Lessons are presented through songs, stories, games and projects that are at a developmentally appropriate level for the age group.
Important life skills such as sharing, treating each other kindly and so forth are also taught in the secular classes, but in the Jewish component classrooms these skills are presented within the framework of Jewish values (e.g. "Mitzvot" represent acts of kindness, or "Tikkun Olam" means "repairing our world").
