Director of Early Childhood Education & Family Engagement Dale Kleisley

Enriches the lives of young children and their families by providing opportunities for learning, creativity, exploration and curiosity. Inspired by the principles of the Reggio Emilia approach, all children are competent learners, ready to explore their environments, engage in social interactions and construct their own learning. Play is essential because it offers opportunities to build relationships with other children, with materials and with their environment. Family engagement opportunities, including parent education workshops and individual counseling, are integral parts of the program.

The preschool is infused with Judaic values and culture. Classroom experiences are guided by Jewish holidays and traditions, including a weekly all-school Shabbat and Havdalah rituals. By living our Jewish values, cooking and celebrating the Jewish holidays, the school helps make Judaism a meaningful part of each family’s life.
