Our Philosophy
  • a focus on the whole child, ensuring that all children are respected, supported, engaged, and challenged
  • a developmentally appropriate approach to teaching
  • an emphasis on Jewish values such as:

- b’tzelem Elohim (we are all created in the image of God)
- derech eretz (common decency and appropriate behavior, literally translated as ‘way of the world')
- kavod (respect for one another)
- tzedakah (helping others)
