Nevatim (“sprouts”) delivers progressive Jewish education in a warm, intimate, and family oriented environment. Housed in a sunlit loft space, the program maintains a multi-age class (2 years and 9 months to 5-years old) in the Reggio-Emilia tradition. Children in the Nevatim program enjoy the support of spirited and experienced staff, with a small child-to-teacher ratio to ensure that their needs are met. Each day that a child walks through our doors, he or she has the opportunity to shape the class culture, pursue personal interests, and build developmentally appropriate skills and abilities.
Our class curriculum balances the emphasis on Jewish tradition with the concept of emergent curriculum. Judaism shines through in many exciting ways such as storytelling, singing, ritual, cooking, games, and more. Alternatively, emergent curriculum suggests a style of teaching in which staff closely follows the child’s cues regarding what ideas and objects they are ready to explore, play with, and learn from.
Nevatim is a place where Judaism is integral. We offer an exciting and nurturing environment designed to develop children into curious, joyous, and interconnected beings.
