Junior and Senior Kindergarten
Kindness and Wonder // יראה & חסד
Our enriching, two-year kindergarten program is comprised of "junior" and "senior" classes that launch our students on their ten-year learning journey. The program focuses on exploration, curiosity and Jewish values. Personalized and meaningful academic, social and emotional learning opportunities are at the core of instruction, and the readiness of each child determines the pace, intensity and depth of learning.
Jewish values are modeled and integrated into all aspects of teaching and learning, with a focus on kindness (hesed) and wonder and awe (yir'ah). Technology is seamlessly integrated using iPads to enhance communication and creativity through blogs, applications, and design tools.
Multiple opportunities to explore, discover and create through play-based learning and targeted instruction characterize a typical day in MJDS' kindergarten. Daily Hebrew and Jewish studies complement the language arts, math, social studies and science curriculum. Music, physical education and art are woven into each day, playing an important role in the development of the whole child.
Daily communication with parents provides a unique partnership between school and home that allows a window into daily learning and maximizes every child's opportunity for success.
