Temple Emanuel’s transitional program offers a safe environment for our mobile infants to crawl and explore the world around them through appropriate materials and tactile experiences.

Toddler Program 18 months- 33 months

Toddlers build nurturing relationships with teachers and friends while learning to gain independence and to cope with a new environment. Teachers work with their growing curiosity about the world by offer stimulating hands- on experiences.

Preschool Program- 3 years – 4 years

Children ages 3-4 thrive and grow when they are part of a community. They learn vital social skills that will support them and be instrumental to them throughout life. They use tools, equipment and symbols to refine their understanding of the world around them. With each day, they refine their independence.

Pre-Kindergarten Program: 4- years- 5 years

Children in our Pre-K program continue to foster independence as they learn more about the world around them as well as begin to look at the world academically while still in a play- based environment. This program allows children to strengthen their relationships and work cooperatively.
