“After having tried and looked at several pre-school programs, we finally enrolled our daughter at Chabad, and realized how much small classes and truly devoted and loving teachers can do for the development of a child.”
Daily schedules vary from room to room, but generally a day proceeds as follows:
|ARRIVAL AND GREETINGS Teachers warmly welcome each child to the classroom and support them in settling into the morning routine at school. Parents connect with the teachers and say goodbye to their children.
