From the Director

Thank you for your interest in Temple Emanu-El’s Nursery School and Kindergarten.

New children admitted to our school will begin a program designed to capture and enhance their eagerness to relate to new adults and children as well as to learn. We make a great effort to meet both the special needs and individual talents of each child. Through our play-based program, our goal is to foster in each child his or her ability to socialize appropriately, develop self-esteem, and nurture intellectual curiosity, providing our young students a firm foundation as they begin their journey of lifelong learning.

While it has long been our policy to give priority with respect to admission to members of Congregation Emanu-El and siblings, this priority is not automatic. We welcome all applicants from diverse ethnic, racial, socio-economic, and religious backgrounds, and encourage you to set a time with us to visit our school, to see our teachers and curriculum in action.

Ellen Davis, Director
