Jewish Creative Preschool is inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy and has integrated important parts of it into our curriculum, facility design and teaching style. We believe that it’s philosophy is consistent with our Jewish values and teachings. Throughout the school year, secular subjects as well as Jewish culture and traditions will be reinforced at JCP in the Reggio way: comprehensive, hands-on and explorative. We encourage your children to use their senses, investigate, and experiment.
The preschool curriculum is based on a thematic approach. Each theme is broken into sub-themes and from these, activities are developed. The activities encompass each of the curriculum areas; English language arts, Hebrew language arts, math, science, social studies, art, music and creative movement. The activities also involve the multiple intelligences, the styles that all people use to approach learning; bodily/kinesthetic, naturalistic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, existential/spiritualistic, visual/spatial, musical/rhythmic, verbal/linguistic, and mathematical/logical.
Please note that our teachers gear the curriculum towards the age and needs of the children. Therefore, the teacher may choose to spend more or less time on a theme.
