At Temple Beth El David Posnack Preschool we help you instill a love of learning in your child.
Children ages 12 months to 5 years old come to our school happy and excited to experience new things. From reading, writing, and math, to art, science, and dance, Temple Beth El’s preschool introduces a world of possibilities. Our caring teachers provide an ideal environment for students to succeed academically and socially. Through state-of-the-art technology, hands-on-activities, and the most up to date teaching tools, Temple Beth El’s preschool sets your children up for a lifetime of learning and discovery.
Our curriculum concentrates on the basics – reading, writing and arithmetic – all implemented through play, observation and experimentation. However, there is plenty of time for fun and games. We are also committed to teaching values, morals and Jewish traditions. Everything we do is developmentally appropriate for your child and we keep in mind that everyone is different. Our teachers tailor the lessons to fit each child’s needs.
