For more than 35 years, The Preschool at Temple Emanuel has provided children meaning and joy through play. We create an environment that encourages children to learn through discovery. Our commitment to this growth is seen in our rich, developmentally appropriate play-based curriculum. We provide experiences for children that promote learning in the academic domains of literacy, math and science as well as the more traditional early learning areas of cognitive, social, emotional, physical and language development. We meet all children at their own developmental level, nurture their growth and foster excitement of their discoveries.
