Nursery School

Our play-based curriculum nurtures a lifelong love of learning and emotional skills that children carry through life.

This is a unique educational moment in the life of your child. It’s a time when children are free to focus on building positive relationships and self-esteem. At Temple Emanu-El, we believe that these skills prepare your child to thrive in life. In a warm and nurturing environment, we work closely with you to honor your child’s special talents and needs. Above all, we strive to create a strong sense of community among our families.
