The major goal of the Nursery program is to instill a love of learning and of school in every child. As we welcome our youngest Hebrew Academy citizens through our doors, we offer a program that incorporates a variety of activities to aid each child's growth and development. Staff members evaluate the progress of each child through formal methods at various points during the year, and informally on a daily basis. The curriculum and activities are adapted to meet the needs of each child.
Mitzvot and Hebrew Language
The children are introduced to basic tefillot, holiday times and Shabbat through appropriate Early Childhood materials - songs, dances, arts and crafts, cooking, stories, parties, puzzles, etc. We are concerned with the aura created in the classroom in terms of Torah and Mitzvot. We hope to transfer to each and every child in our Nursery group, a feeling of excitement, joy and pride in the fact that he/she is a Jew. Hebrew language is used in songs, games and daily classroom routine. Children are introduced to the letters of the Alef-Bet through songs and games. In addition, the Nursery celebrates Shabbat with a weekly Erev Shabbat Celebration.
