Preschool (ECEC)

In a caring and nurturing environment, The Early Childhood Education Center at Temple Beth Tikvah creates a comfortable and happy place for children ages 18 months- 5 years to learn and grow. The uniqueness of our Jewish preschool program can be found in the quality of day-to-day interactions among children, staff and parents. Bridging the gap from home to school, we guide children toward a development of a positive self-image while building social skills and Jewish values.

Our daily schedules include hands-on exploration to further a child’s creativity, independence and problem-solving. Small and large group activities strengthen the preschooler’s social skills, self-esteem, self-control, and teamwork abilities. A balance of teacher-directed and child-directed activities serves to reinforce, enrich and challenge the child in a setting in which his or her individuality is respected. Our low student to teacher ratio allows us to meet the needs of the individual child. We encourage a love of learning by enabling children to experience their own stage of development and helping them feel success without pressure.

We are honored that you are considering Temple Beth Tikvah as part of your child’s Jewish preschool education. We look forward to seeing your child’s growth and development throughout the course of the year.


Scholarships are available for children aged 4 and up from the ALEF Fund.  For more information contact Linda Siegel, Preschool Director, at
