Chanen Preschool strongly believes that the preschool experience should involve the entire family. With Tot Shabbats once a month with a family dinner afterwards, our family Havdalah program, our Chanukah Carnival and our frequent special events, there is something for everyone! Grandparents even love to come and join us for special days.
Our hours are 7:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. M-Th and until 5:00 p.m. on Fridays. The curriculum part of our day begins at 9:00 a.m. and goes until 1:00 p.m. We offer naptime for all ages. Enrichment Classes, such as tennis, art, computers, soccer, drama & cooking are offered to our 3’s and 4’s classes for an additional fee.
Chanen Preschool is lucky to be the only Jewish Preschool in the Valley to have a beautiful Art Studio and full time Art Specialist. Students visit “Austin’s Art Studio” on a weekly basis and engage in age-appropriate art education. They are exposed to so many new and exciting opportunities in the Studio and it is a Chanen favorite!
In addition to our curriculum, we offer music, Spanish, Hebrew and P.E. Every Friday we have an all school Shabbat in the Chapel where the families are included. Once a month we have a Tot-Shabbat where the preschool celebrates Shabbat as a community at 5:30 with a 15-20 minute service followed by a dairy dinner.
In addition to our preschool program, we offer a full summer and winter camp program, extending to 4th graders under the name of Camp Simcha.
