Fun & Creativity
Research shows the importance of early childhood experiences–from birth through 5 years–on a child’s future growth and development.
Exposure to Judaism at home and in childcare can help children to grow up with a strong Jewish identity. This is our primary mission at Jewish Beginnings.
All children are musical. All children can learn to sing in tune, keep a beat, and participate with confidence in the music of our culture, provided that their early environment supports such learning. Our music program introduces children to new songs and rhythms and helps them develop confidence in their musical experience.
Movement allows children to connect concepts to action and to learn through trial and error.
At Jewish Beginnings we endeavor to integrate movement throughout the day, using Music & Movement, and other movement activities.
Learning to communicate verbally and listen carefully are the cornerstones of a preschool education. We incorporate language skills in all of our activities from the stages of education.
Students are beginning their experience with numbers through counting, number names and written numerals. Students are learning to count objects and understand a one-to-one correspondence. They are also starting to compare different sets of objects and use appropriate language.
The creative arts are activities that engage a child’s imagination and can include activities such as art, dance, puppetry, and music. They stimulate and help children cultivate their abilities across virtually every domain, and they are open-ended activities, fostering flexibility of the mind.
