Our Mission

The mission of Center City's Jewish Preschool is to operate a Jewish early childhood center that nurtures and educates children ages 18 months to 5 years. The center blends Judaic and secular subjects into a program that is rich, fulfilling, and stimulating. It is dedicated to meeting each child's physical, emotional, intellectual, social, and spiritual needs.

Our Philosophy

The educational environment is dynamic, constantly changing. As early childhood educators, we must keep our curriculum on the cutting edge- continually updating our programming to keep pace with new developments in the field of early childhood education. We will focus on giving children the skills necessary for blossoming into maturity: pre-math skills, reading readiness, art, drama, music and computers. As a Jewish preschool, we will also teach the skill of Jewish identity- the joy of being a Jew.

Finally, at the heart of our program, is our desire to nurture in our children, a concern, kindness and sensitivity for their fellow human beings.
