Shalom School's preschool program for children ages 2.5 to 5+ years provides stimulation, exposure, and enrichment to students through a variety of hands-on experiences. Our program offers two preschool classes: Gesher - for students who are 2.5 by the start of the school year (mid-August) and Yonim - for students who are 3.3 by the start of the school year (mid-August) and are also fully toilet trained.
Preschool programs follow the Pre-Kindergarten through Sixth grade school calendar based on a 10 month program. The preschool teacher/child ratio is between 1:8 and 1:12.
Families have several options, including a three day program (M, W, F) and a five day program (M-F) and different length school days. On Fridays, all preschool classes participate in a special Shabbat lunch with music; family and guests are encouraged to attend. Programming is available from mid-August through early June from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. We also run a summer program in July and August.
