At Adat Reyim Preschool we find child-initiated, child-directed, teacher-supported play is the most important component of our program, allowing children to grow physically, emotionally and socially. Children learn to negotiate, share, cooperate and respect the rights of others. Adat Reyim Preschool is influenced by the Reggio-Emilia philosophy and has adopted this style of learning to fit our programs and encompass Jewish values.
The preschool is open to to all children regardless of race, color, religion, nationality or ethnicity. We acknowledge and respect the diversity of our children while emphasizing the values of family, community, caring, joy, tradition and rituals.
Adat Reyim Preschool is a Religiously Exempt Child Day Center.

Our Pre-K class meets Monday through Friday. The goal of this program is to promote social and emotional readiness for kindergarten. Academic skills including language, writing, and communication, as well as beginning mathematic and scientific concepts, are introduced and reinforced in an organic way through play and enrichment. If you expect your child to start kindergarten the following fall school year, our Pre-K class will be an appropriate environment. Social and emotional readiness is an integral part of the program and parents will be provided with ongoing feedback about their child's growth and development. Our attentive teachers help children prepare for the transition to public or private school. We make sure our preschoolers have the skill set they need to thrive in a kindergarten class. The program is in session from 9:15 - 1:15.
