Toddler Curriculum

        Children in this class are two by September 1. In this class, we strive to expand communication and play skills.  Children will explore shapes, colors, numbers, seasons, holidays, weather and community through games, puzzles, projects, stories, songs, finger plays, and movement activities. Holiday celebrations, Hebrew program, weekly Shabbat, music and gym are all part of the school year program
