Hello and welcome to Jewish Beginnings!
We are so glad you are taking the time to learn more about our preschool and find out how we can best serve your family’s needs. 

Why Jewish Beginnings?

We hold ourselves to the very highest standards of early childhood education: Jewish Beginnings has been proudly accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children for 25 years, and is inspired by the award-winning Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education.

Our program is carefully crafted to serve the needs of your developing child: We begin at the age of 6 weeks and continue through K4. These ages span the peak years of early childhood learning. Many of our K4 students have been with us since infancy, progressing through each stage of our program and proudly graduating as the most senior students in the school. At graduation, there isn’t a dry eye in the room.

We’ve been doing this for a long time: almost 50 years. For close to half a century, we have been nurturing, educating, and loving children. We have a rich heritage and years of experience, and we are constantly improving and innovating. 

Every single decision we make serves our mission: To provide children with a warm, loving environment where they develop a passion for learning, share the joys of our heritage, and shape a lifelong, positive Jewish identity. From the nutritious meals prepared in-house, to our commitment to providing flexible year-round care, to our rich variety of extracurriculars and after-school events, to the deep love and dedication we have for every child who enters our school, we strive to integrate our values into every learning opportunity.
