MJCCA Preschools are a special community, one that builds lifelong learners, lasting friendships, and a lifetime of memories. At The Schiff School we enrich the lives of young children and their families by providing a creative and warm community with a variety of opportunities for learning, growth, curiosity, and exploration. Our progressive preschool curriculum focuses on cognition, literacy, physical development, and social and emotional growth all guided by Jewish values and culture. We honor the collaboration between children, families, and educators for a creative learning environment. Our preschool builds a strong community through parent education, family programs, social programs, and holiday celebrations.
Enrichment opportunities are as intrinsic to our preschool curriculum as they are to your child’s growth and expanding interests. Our weekly specials include drama, music, art, Judaics, PE & movement, and Shabbat Sing.
The Schiff School boasts dedicated music, art, and drama rooms to inspire creativity and an amazing indoor play gym. Our outdoor playground is perfect for little ones to run, slide, and engage in imaginary play. The Temple Emanu-El campus also features an organic garden, a library, and a sanctuary to further encourage exploration, culture, and Jewish education.
All registration information and documents can be found on the Admissions & Forms page.
The MJCCA’s Inclusion Program strives to provide the necessary accommodations and flexibility for youth who require additional support so they may access the transformative opportunities available at the MJCCA. Our Inclusion Team collaborates with parents, educators, and staff to determine if successful program placement is possible. These youth and their families are then supported by our Inclusion Team through program accommodations and may also receive individualized assistance. Click here for more information.
