ABOUT TEMPLE SINAI NURSERY SCHOOL
Temple Sinai Nursery School (TSNS) is a Developmental Early Childhood Program which emphasizes experiential “hands-on” learning. We have achieved accreditation by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and we are a Partnership for Jewish Life & Learning Commended School. The philosophy of the school is based on the theories of Piaget, Bruner, Vygotsky, Erikson, Gardner, the Bank Street Model, and constructivist education, and is inspired by the practices of the Reggio Emilia Approach.
Our school serves children ages 2 years through pre-kindergarten. We see children as competent individuals who flourish in a joyful early childhood setting that encourages freedom of expression, focuses on building strong social-emotional skills, and promotes self-confidence through active hands-on learning. Our program is imbued with Jewish values that emphasize and promote kindness (g’milut chasadim), doing good deeds (mitzvot) and taking care of our world (tikkun olam). TSNS enjoys long term relationships with its faculty, a third of whom have master’s degrees or higher in the field. Faculty engage in professional development on an ongoing basis. In addition, consultants in the areas of motor, speech, behavior, health and social work provide guidance to faculty and families on site. Please follow this link to learn more about TSNS.
