The JFNH Preschool is a place where children, ages 2-5 years, can receive a quality education in a Jewish atmosphere. Our goals include forming a positive, curious attitude about learning, and encouraging the development and enjoyment of a Jewish identity.
A major focus of the JFNH Preschool is the development of the child: socially, emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually. We maintain a low staff to student ratio, thus guaranteeing that each child receives consistent individual attention.
It is our objective to learn about Judaism in a natural way. The teachers emphasize Judaic content with songs, stories, blessings, Sabbath and holiday programming for the children and parents.
Parental involvement is an important aspect of a successful Preschool experience. You are cordially invited to visit, share your skills, and enjoy your Preschool. As parents, you may be asked to participate in your child's classroom.
