Welcome to the Kehillah School for Early Learning at Temple Israel of New Rochelle.
This closely knit community is anintegral part of our Temple’s congregation. Families with young children have the opportunity to share in all aspects of Temple life, including monthly Tot Shabbat celebrations, young children’s services for the High Holy Days, and free Jewish book club subscriptions in the national PJ Library program. Everyone is welcome at the many Temple-wide activities and holiday celebrations at which congregants of all ages come together.
For a look inside Kehillah
We invite you to learn about The Kehillah School’s comprehensive program, which offers both partial and full-day education throughout the calendar year for children from 6 weeks to 6 years of age. Whether you are seeking a six-hour classroom experience for your child during the conventional school year, or year-round full-time schooling for up to twelve hours a day, Temple Israel has the program to accommodate your needs.
In the warm and nurturing environment of our Kehillah School, teachers provide a developmentally appropriate, educational curriculum for young children within the context of Judaism. Our goal is to equip your son or daughter with the self-confidence to explore all that he or she questions about the world. Here, each child is encouraged to pursue a path of discovery which will make the process of learning a rewarding and exciting one. This is where a young mind’s introduction to schooling can reveal the joys of learning and set the course for a lifetime of intellectual pursuit, creativity, and critical thinking.
With Temple Israel’s more than 30 years of experience in early childhood education, and our new, operating partnership with Bright Horizons Family Solutions, our Kehillah School for Early Learning is now able to serve the needs of many more families in Westchester County. Please read on to learn about all aspects of our program and facility, our rich partnership with parents, the credentials of our experienced staff, our educational philosophy, and the spiritual and ethical components of our teachings which have relevance to families of all faiths and backgrounds.
