We are dedicated to the belief that individual differences and learning styles should be celebrated and that children learn best through play in a kind, nurturing environment that cultivates their social, emotional, physical, cognitive and spiritual development.
BHS classrooms are designed to embrace exploration with open arms, open shelves, open-ended activities, and open minds! We look forward to listening to our students’ young voices and all they have to share each year. Our high teacher to student ratio allows teachers to support children in both their cognitive and emotional growth.
Every year and every class is different as they follow their interests! Children may complete a study of the firehouse, find out all about the farmers at the local green market, or perform their own play about the heroes they have invented. Literacy, science, art, and early math skills are incorporated into this engaging curriculum, creating highly motivated learners.
Teachers introduce the Jewish holidays to children in much the same way they approach curriculum, by making it relevant, meaningful and accessible to young learners. Stories, symbols, songs and even the tastes of holidays allow our students to begin exploration of Jewish traditions and values. Shabbat is celebrated with great enthusiasm with grape juice, challah, songs, and stories. Families often opt to join the “Challah Club” and take home a challah each Friday afternoon.
Students from the Preschool go on to many local public and private schools. Teachers and administrators take an active role in kindergarten placement for our students through advisement and written student recommendations. For those families who join Brooklyn Heights Synagogue, kindergarten in the Religious School at BHS is free.
The Brooklyn Heights Synagogue Preschool opened its doors in the fall of 2002. Since that time the school has reflected the values and traditions held by the Brooklyn Heights Synagogue, an inclusive Reform synagogue with a history of community and social outreach. The caring sense of family and community that is central to the synagogue is incorporated into daily routines and the philosophy of the preschool.
