Preschool Enrichment Activities

 

“ We could not be more pleased with JEA Preschool!  Our expectations were rather small when our first child started here 5 years ago, but over time (and two more children) we have come to realize that JEA Preschool sets the bar above the rest.  The groundwork for our children’s Jewish identities and foundation for becoming good people were largely shaped by their experiences here.  We’ve been very happy with the informative, thoughtful, open lines of communication,  the variety of on-campus enrichment activities, the informative teaching of sustainability and gardening, the attention to security and safety, and the principles and traditions of Judaism taught in a way that all can appreciate.  These factors have given us great comfort as we navigate our children’s early years.  Keep up the great work!” – Garrett and Ross Kaminsky

Tuneful Tykes is a specialized afternoon music class which helps children prepare for future instrument playing. The children learn to sing tunefully, move expressively and rhythmically, appreciate and create their own music, and develop age-appropriate musical concepts. The teacher, Mrs. Angela Powell, has been trained in Level 2 of the Orff-Schulwerk philosophy. This method uses various aspects of music education to allow children to internalize what they experience through singing, movement, rhythmic games, improvising music and more!

 

Class is $45 for six sessions.
