Barnert Temple Preschool & Family Center invites Jewish parents who have a child entering kindergarten this coming fall to tour the school and watch the kindergarten class in action. On January 18, parents can sit in the class and visit with the teacher and director from 9:15 – 10:30 am. They’ll learn about programming, curriculum and the benefits of a small class size. Parents will have a chance to ask about readiness, and the impact that one-on-one attention can make to a child’s success.
Barnert offers a full-day kindergarten on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday with half days on Tuesday and Thursdays. There is an afternoon-only kindergarten enrichment program on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Barnert also offers various enrichment classes like cooking, soccer, and pottery on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. Classes are open to the public.
“When a child enters kindergarten, it’s one of the biggest school transitions a child will make,” explained Sara Losch, Barnert’s Director of Lifelong Learning. “Parents are faced with dilemmas about readiness, schedules and curriculum. We offer solutions, and we explain why parents should consider a private Jewish kindergarten that not only prepares the children for first grade but develops positive feelings about their identity as individuals and as part of a Jewish community.”
