Shaare Torah Nursery School Philosophy

Shaare Torah Early Childhood Center provides an engaging environment to develop a love of learning and prepare your child for formal education.

Our Goals Are to:

  • Provoke curiosity and encourage creative and critical thinking
  • Provide learning through inquiry-based play, and in-depth exploration
  • Foster strong collaborative skills as well as independence and self confidence
  • Tie all learning together with a Jewish lens

Our Program:

At Shaare Torah, we believe that children learn best through:

  • Relationships with responsive caring adults, who are co-learners committed to their own development as excellent educators.
  • Active hands-on and minds-on learning experiences which engage children’s thinking processes and encourage them to investigate, question, and problem solve.
  • Meaningful experiences when information and concepts are connected to what they already know and understand.
  • Dynamic construction of their understanding of the world.  Through exploration children are continually working to figure things out and understand their world on their own terms.
  • A caring and nurturing environment that respects their competency and sees them as capable and confident with a voice.
