About Us

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, science and exploration, service dog visits, Hebrew immersion, family Shabbat, and music.

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 PJ Library

PJ Library is a Jewish family engagement program implemented throughout North America that mails high-quality Jewish children's literature and music to families on a monthly basis.
