The NSHA Early Childhood program establishes a foundation of learning in a warm, nurturing Jewish environment. In a play-oriented environment, children learn social skills plus pre-reading and pre-writing literacy, which lay the foundation for their future academic and social success.
Skilled and nurturing teachers create a developmentally appropriate environment that allows children to learn, thrive, develop and feel confident about their abilities.
Early Childhood students become independent learners, explore their Jewish identity, and practice personal creativity and expression. The integration of learning enables children to understand the world around them through the arts, literature, and oral expression. The curriculum is enriched with many specialty classes, including yoga, music, computers, science, physical education and library visits. The enrichment program includes an iPad lab that allows students to explore the world beyond the school walls while teaching early computer literacy.
