Dear Families-

Providing children with experiences and opportunities to learn and practice newly acquired skills defines the essence of our curriculum. Research in child development and how children learn supports offering them challenges just beyond their present mastery in a comfortable and safe environment. This allows children and teachers to flourish together in a community of trust and feeling valued.

Our Teachers are skilled in knowing how to present the content areas of literacy, math, science, social studies, arts, and process skills in a way that meets each child's developmental needs. We offer opportunities for both child-initiated and teacher-directed learning.

In following the guidelines of the Union for Reform Judaism, we offer programming that presents an early approach to the teaching of Judaism alongside nonsecular learning.

We welcome family participation knowing that every family has something positive to offer. Whether it's volunteering at an event, sharing a talent in the classroom, or participating in parent-teacher conferences, everyone wins!

Please join us and share in the magic and love of lifelong learning with your children!

          Warmly,


 Nancy Kovacs

When you choose to enroll your children in Temple Sha’arey Shalom Preschool, you will know you have joined your “home away from home.” Our warm and nurturing professional teaching staff represents over one hundred years of early childhood experience, and we are proud to have been selected for membership in Grow NJ Kids.

Our educational program embraces both academic and social learning. As a result of careful planning and intentional teaching, children are exposed to countless meaningful experiences and enrichment activities. Every child’s uniqueness is celebrated and all are encouraged to be the best they can be. We pride ourselves on our commitment to engaging and involving families in our many programs and events.

The success of our Preschool is a direct result of the opportunities afforded to our children across domains including, but not limited to, language and literacy, science and math, technology, and creative arts. Weekly and/or monthly enrichments feature yoga and fitness, sign language, science and exploration, service dog visits, Hebrew immersion, family Shabbat, and music with the New Jersey Music Society.

Following the guidelines of the Union for Reform Judaism, which focuses on integrated Jewish learning, we are an inclusive Preschool and welcome those who want a fulfilling theme-based program infused with Jewish holidays and tradition.

We are proud to be affiliated with two outstanding programs, PJ Library and the New Jersey Music Society.
