During the summer of 2011, Temple Israel's early childhood wing underwent a major renovation, transforming it into a state-of-the-art facility for the optimal care and education of children ranging in age from infants to pre-K students.K web assrtd 6 Just four years later, classrooms were added to accommodate the growing numbers of families interested in joining the community. Charming, child-friendly hallways, painted with a village-like picket fence lead the way to spacious, bright, well-equipped classrooms--all of which are above ground and designed for each age group’s specific learning experiences.

Classes come together each Friday for personal and casual, camp-style Shabbat services in the newly modernized conference center that is located within the Kehillah School wing. 

K web facilities

The children of Kehillah enjoy physical exercise in four wonderful up-to-date play spaces. We are proud to say that our large outdoor playground for toddlers and pre-K students was created by our school’s very active and dedicated Parents Association. With colorful spaces for imaginative play, a drum circle for musical activity, a shaded area, and poured rubber flooring, the children can safely engage in energetic outdoor play.  A new infant space was installed, as well, so that even our youngest students can enjoy the bright sunshine and cool breezes. Our most recent expansion also added another outdoor space for the use of riding toys, sand and water.

Indoors, children of all ages make use of gym equipment that is designed to develop gross motor skills. Whether advancing up our indoor climbing wall or standing atop one of our many play spaces, the children of Kehillah are always working to reach new heights.
