Nursery School

The Forest Hills Jewish Center provides a complete, well balanced, secular and Jewish education. Our educational methods encourage children to become confident, independent, responsible, and creative thinkers. We integrate our secular studies (language arts, science, music, math) and art activities around the Jewish calendar.

Active learning is the cornerstone to our educational approach. The children participate in exploratory activities that use all their senses; touching, smelling, tasting, seeing and hearing. Using their five senses, the children actively explore and experience their world in a fun and sometimes messy way.

Children are also exposed to pre-reading activities on a daily basis. The presence of visually supportive materials encourages early literacy.

Equally important as active learning is the development of interpersonal skills that will help ensure smooth and productive in the years of learning that lie ahead.

In addition, we also offer Pre-K for All with an optional Judaic wraparound program.
