Nursery School Programs and Registration
Our Nursery School classes
Bet Torah Nursery School offers preschool classes for two, three, and four year-olds. We also offer a Kitah Katan program, a two day per week separation class for toddlers 18 months and older. This year, we are introducing new Parenting Programs, Musical Mensch and Sprouts classes for moms, dads, grandparents and caregivers with their infants and toddlers.
Our early education program is designed to promote cognitive, social, emotional, and physical growth in each child in a developmentally appropriate, exciting and inviting environment. We strive to provide opportunities for children to learn through play each day.
We offer classes for the 2s in a two day (Tuesday and Thursday), three day (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) or a five day program from 9:30 – 11:45 a.m. We offer classes five days each week for 3s and 4s from 9:15 to noon.
Kitah Katan is a program of separation, socialization, sharing and fun for toddlers 18 months and older held on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9:30 to 11:45 a.m. Children may be enrolled for two mornings of music, art, story time, movement, and indoor and outdoor play each week. A snack is provided daily. Enrollment is limited to ten children.
An early childhood head teacher and two teacher assistants conduct each morning of fun-filled developmentally appropriate activities. Kitah Katan provides a special time for young children to experience learning through play all in a beginning school setting.
