THE TEMPLE BETH SHALOM NURSERY SCHOOL       

Offering our preschoolers a remarkable opportunity to participate in a very special early childhood program in our warm and nurturing Temple setting. We provide stimulating experiences to promote the social, emotional, cognitive, language and physical development of our young students while responding to the  needs of their families. We have terrific classes for two, three, and Pre-K four/five-year old children.

Our programs integrate specialists in music, art, mindful yoga, and outdoor environmental learning with a naturalist, to enhance the children's experiences.

Add to this our deeply committed and loving early childhood staff... learning about jewish holidays and traditions... and we understand why our nursery school is the crown jewel of Temple Beth Shalom.
