Welcome to Our Play-Based Preschool: A Place of Discovery, Connection, and Joy Where Meaningful Learning Happens
At The Preschool at Mishkon, we believe that learning should be a joyful adventure, filled with laughter, exploration, and meaningful connections. Our play-based approach nurtures the social and emotional growth of each child, allowing them to flourish in a supportive and engaging environment.
Our Unique Curriculum: Where Interests Inspire Learning
We understand that every child is a unique individual with their own passions and interests. That's why our curriculum is designed to empower children by incorporating their natural curiosity into the learning process. Through emergent curriculum, we tap into their interests, using subjects they are genuinely excited about as vehicles for teaching important skills and concepts.
A Close-Knit Community: More Than Just a School
The Preschool at Mishkon is not just a school; it's a close-knit family. Our small size allows for personalized attention and meaningful relationships to blossom. Community building is at the heart of what we do, and we provide ample opportunities for families to connect, collaborate, and grow together. We believe that by fostering a strong sense of belonging, we create an environment where children can thrive both academically and emotionally.
Jewish Values and Experiential Learning
As a Jewish preschool, we integrate essential life values through a Jewish lens throughout the year. Our experiential Jewish curriculum encourages hands-on, sensory-rich experiences, allowing children to develop a deep understanding and appreciation for Jewish traditions and celebrations. By immersing themselves in meaningful rituals and experiences, children develop a strong sense of identity and connection to their heritage.
Animal Friends and Nature Exploration
We love animals and believe they bring a special magic to our preschool community. With animal friends always around, children have the opportunity to learn empathy, responsibility, and kindness as they interact with these gentle creatures. Our animal companions create a nurturing and enchanting environment that fosters a deep connection to the natural world. There is also a garden that the children interact with and harvest from when possible, continuing to strengthen their relationship to nature.
Music, Yoga, and Mindfulness: Harmonizing Body and Mind
To support the holistic development of our students, we offer weekly music and yoga & mindfulness classes that are thoughtfully tailored to suit children of all ages. These developmentally appropriate sessions enhance their cognitive abilities, promote body awareness, and cultivate a sense of calm and focus. Through rhythmic melodies and mindful practices, children embrace their individuality while developing important self-regulation skills.
Join Our Preschool Community
When you join our preschool, you become a valued member of our synagogue if you have one Jewish parent. We celebrate Jewish holidays and provide a nurturing space where Jewish traditions and values are interwoven seamlessly into our daily activities, though you do not have to have one Jewish parent to join our preschool. All are welcome!
