The Shul Child Enrichment Center

The Shul Child Enrichment Center is a place where Jewish children receive an exciting, creative and nurturing experience that will provide them with the foundation to grow spiritually, educationally and socially. We strive to constantly offer the most educational models in one great curriculum.

Your child's experience will be filled with Jewish traditions and customs intertwined with the Montessori philosophy. This method emphasizes the unique individuality and importance of each child. Activities include the use of the five senses, kinetic movement, spatial refinement, small and large motor skill coordination, and concrete knowledge that lead to later abstraction and enhanced development. Also incorporated is a highly creative art program as well as gym, music, yoga and more.

As an educational approach, The Shul Child Enrichment Center woven with the Montessori Method focuses on the needs, talents and gifts of these children. Children who experience the joy of learning are believed to be happy, confident, and fulfilled. We provide small classes with excellent teacher/ student ratios, professional staff of early childhood specialists and modern facilities with a child oriented environment so children can explore, touch, and learn without fear, developing a lifelong love for learning.

We welcome every Jewish child regardless of background of affiliation. Your child will receive a well-rounded enriching education, filled with the richness of Judaism.
