Mission Statement

The school’s mission is to promote the social, emotional and cognitive development of each child. Teachers facilitate the learning process by offering children a range of developmentally appropriate activities and materials, and by helping them make decisions driven by their own interests.


The Preschool at Temple Emanuel provides a safe, loving environment where children feel free to explore and learn about themselves, others and the world around them. The school fosters parental growth and education through family-oriented events and educational opportunities. We also encourage and support the continued professional development of our staff. Teachers and parents work as partners to support and cultivate each child’s intellectual, social and developmental growth. 
The Preschool at Temple Emanuel is committed to an inclusive learning environment. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion or family structure.
