ENRICHMENT SPECIALISTS

Our wonderful enrichment programs include music, art, Shabbat, Science, health & fitness and more. Each week our children visit our richly equipped art studio with our art specialist. In Studio Art, the children explore different mediums such as paint, clay, woodworking and collaging. Children use their imagination to produce their own works of art. On Friday, our school celebrates Shabbat. Shabbat with Cantor Idan Irelander includes singing, guitar playing and eating delicious challah. Parents often join us for this warm celebration. The children enjoy music weekly with our 2 music specialists where they learn songs and participate in movement with rhythm and accompany their singing with instruments. In addition, we have monthly science and physical fitness programs. Through hands-on experiments, puppets, a bit of magic and just plain fun, Science Works with Steve Lechner introduces children to the wonders of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (S.T.E.M.). Ready Set Go with Mr. Steve and Miss Becky offers children an array of non-competitive activities that include gymnastics, sports, games, relays and obstacle courses.

Visiting puppeteers, storytellers, petting zoo and magicians provide excitement to our children throughout the year. Our diverse group of parents at The Preschool at Temple Emanuel is encouraged to share their own traditions and talents in the classroom.
