The Kindergarten curriculum builds on the excellent education our children received in the ECC. The major components of the Kindergarten curriculum are instilling a sense of Jewish identity through the observance of Jewish holidays, stories that illustrate our relationship with God, and the Jewish values we learn in Torah that help us lead meaningful lives. Students will gain an understanding of the names of the holidays on the Jewish calendar and play games, recite blessings and create art projects relating to the holidays. Kindergarten students are also introduced to the letters of the Hebrew alphabet and decorate their own Alef-Bet. Through music and t’fillah (prayer services), the children participate in community worship and will be the focus of a Shabbat Service early in the school year to consecrate the beginning of their formal Jewish education.
