When we feel happy, loved and safe we begin to think and understand, explore and create. Great emphasis is put on choosing staff with a genuine warmth, love and care toward children. We strive to recreate the the warmth and love of the home so that the children can feel comfortable, safe and happy; thereby setting the perfect environment for them to explore and discover their little world.
Our Reggio Emilia-inspired curriculum is driven by the students interests and curiosity, and guided by our experienced teachers and staff ensuring age-appropriate academic excellence . By allowing our students to express their unique areas of strength and interests, and by having opportunities to develop and celebrate those talents, their natural love for learning takes root. They develop confidence and are prepared to make their unique contribution to the world.
At Preschool of the Arts we believe, that like art, goodness in children is not acquired in school or superimposed by greater authorities, but from within. As with talent, their goodness continuously seeks to emerge in the forms of sincerity, compassion for others, and their search for answers to their endless number of questions; and teachers are as a guide creating opportunities to express their goodness. Throughout the year, we celebrate the Jewish holidays and traditions in this fashion as well, giving our students have the opportunity to express their genuine love and excitement for Judaism, through music, art, dance and drama.
Children thrive and develop most optimally in a beautiful and natural environment that echoes theirs interests and work, while also reflecting the ambiance of the home. The colors, furniture, trees, flowers and object d'art of our state-of-the-art facility, all contribute to the creative energy in our classrooms.
