Temple Sinai Community Preschool

Temple Sinai Community Preschool is a licensed non-profit Jewish school

Philosophy

At Temple Sinai, we offer a caring and engaging learning environment for children ages 10 months to 4 years.

Through play-based and inquiry-based learning Temple Sinai Community Preschool strives to provide a happy and supportive environment for children to learn and gain an understanding of the world around them. Our program is based on promoting positive self-esteem, curiosity and creativity. Our goal is to help develop the child’s social, emotional, intellectual and physical capabilities to the fullest.

Temple Sinai Community Preschool follows a child-directed and an emergent curriculum. The terms child-directed and emergent capture the idea that the types of learning a child is ready to do will emerge when a teacher facilitates an environment where they feel secure, engaged and interested. Instead of a teacher-directed lesson plan, the teacher encourages curiosity, play, exploration, collaboration and creativity by developing content that the children demonstrate interest in.
