Welcome to Our School!
Our school is based on the belief that the development of the first years of a child’s life is crucial for later development and success. During these early years, children develop the building blocks of self-concept, cognitive development and motor skills. Our program addresses the needs of young children and provides a rich curriculum that works for the whole of the child. We foster play in a constructive and stimulating way. Our hope is to instill a love of Judaism and embrace its traditions and values.

We are a Keystone Stars 3 school which means we participate in this state initiative of the Office of Child Development and Early Learning (OCDEL) to improve, support, and recognize the continuous quality improvement efforts of early learning programs in Pennsylvania.
Our Center is licensed by the Department of Public Welfare.
In a safe, loving environment, our experienced staff is carefully selected to provide a diverse curriculum for our young children. Using the Pennsylvania learning standards and Creative Curriculum, teachers provide exciting learning moments and special days. Jewish culture and tradition is integrated throughout the curriculum. Holidays are taught and celebrated on the children’s level. Weekly school-wide Shabbat celebrations in the Gitlin Family Sanctuary help our children understand the roles of our rabbinical staff. Cantor Green introduces the children to the beauty and spirituality of Jewish music through the weekly Shabbat service. Families are encouraged to participate in our Shabbat and holiday celebrations, volunteer in our classrooms and chaperone field trips. Our state of the art playground is used on a daily basis for children to work on their gross motor and socialization.
We offer a variety of resource teachers throughout the week. Children enjoy weekly Creative Movement and music classes. Our Pre-K students have physical education instruction, weekly Hebrew and computer classes. Our afternoon programming is chock full of learning for our Pre-K children. Thematic enrichments and a variety of sport activities are offered.
