B'rukhim Habaim, Welcome!
For over 50 years the Foundation School has been a cornerstone of Congregation Neveh Shalom.Through it, we echo the words of our Talmud, "The world rests on the breath of children." For many, the Foundation School has served as an entry into the larger synagogue family. This is our hope for you as well.
Calendars (after may 13th)
We are a licensed preschool with state certified teachers and assistant teachers. Your child, age two through five years, is eligible to be part of a vibrant Jewish preschool. Priority for spaces is given to Neveh Shalom congregants and returning students.
Neveh Shalom Foundation School, based on the values and beliefs of the Jewish faith, is dedicated to providing the highest quality early childhood education. By recognizing play as a child's natural way of learning, we assist in the development of the total child; physical, intellectual, social, emotional, and spritual. We foster your child's interests, promote thier self-esteem and recognize each child as special and unique. We believe that this is the "foundation" on which children develop and a lifelong love of learning is based.
Our traditional preschool curriculum is enhanced by special guests and learning opportunities. Hebrew vocabulary is interwoven in the classrooms through conversation, songs and prayers. Jewish traditions are incorporated through All-School Shabbat and holiday gatherings which include visits from our Jewish music specialist and our clergy. We welcome Shabbat with the children every Friday by sharing candle lighting, grape juice and hallah together.
