Through participation in daily resource classes our DuBow Preschool Students experience a rich student life.
Children are taught the beauty of Judaism, Torah and Israel through stories, songs and puppets. The Jewish holidays come alive through engaging and interactive curriculum.
Children celebrate Shabbat every Friday with songs and blessings and a Shabbat parade lead by teachers and clergy. Each class names a child as ema (mom) and aba (dad) for the week. This is a job of honor! These children help lead the Shabbat festivities each Friday. We look forward to our “Challah Days”. Families are also invited to attend and participate in programs including Passover Model Seders, Shoobee Doobee Shabbat, Purim and more.
Children enjoy a weekly half hour of music filled with songs and dancing. Music time is also used to enhance our Jewish Studies program adding piano and special holiday musical magic to teach fun songs.
Our PE class consists of obstacle courses, games, relays and circle time. We incorporate using gross and fine motor skills each week. Class begins with a lively warm up to stretch our muscles followed by an obstacle course and relay to work our gross motor skills, balance and coordination. In circle time we focus on our fine motor skills. We promote a love of exercise in our young children and believe that fitness can be fun!
Discovery Studio and Preschool Garden
Hands-on, experiential learning that embraces childrens’ innate curiosity about the world around them and creates dynamic and meaningful learning experiences is the guiding philosophy of our school. Our preschoolers are little investigators asking questions and formulating theories on how things work. They love to explore the world as little scientists. We have developed a unique, integrated discovery and exploration curriculum. Our Discovery Studio is an indoor and outdoor space with stations in life science, space and earth science, physical science and ecology. The studio opens up onto our organic children’s garden and outside classroom. Learning comes alive through enlightening, hands-on experiences from rockets to papermaking, foam chemistry to fully contained ecosystems, and water conservation to rollercoasters!
