At Sherith Israel Preschool, we spend the majority of our day outdoors (rain or shine), exploring Lafayette park and other local neighborhood areas to actively connect with the community. We infuse Jewish values into our daily routines, beginning our day in our beautiful historical Synagogue. In instances of extreme weather, we find shelter within one of the many spaces in the temple house building.

For the 2024-25 school year children must be two by Aug. 15th.  If your child does not meet the deadline and there is space available-we will hold a space until your child turns two.  We offer both full and part time options to accommodate a diverse range of needs. After care depends on availability of staff, 2 & 3 day options are offered for two years old but once children transition to the preschool class we only offer a 5 day schedule. For the 2023-24 school year we are open to accommodating other schedule options per request.


Summer Camp Options (Full and partial day options):

This summer we will be offering 5 two week sessions for young learners to explore nature, play with friends, and experience some enrichment activities like DIY arts, music and movement, cooking/tasting various foods, and exploring space! We will be out in nature for 3 hours from drop off to 12:30. For children who are staying full days, they will walk back to school with the crew for rest time, afternoon classroom play and theme related activities. Our goal is to provide a safe space for children to play and socialize while sprinkling in some themes so they can continue their love for learning throughout the summer. Come explore nature with us!
