Chanen Preschool promotes Jewish values and establishes a love for life-long learning within our children. It is not just a Jewish Preschool; it is a preschool for Jewish children. Chanen Preschool offers a developmentally appropriate curriculum emphasizing education. PreK graduates leave with literacy and the social skills needed to meet the challenges they will face in Kindergarten.
Childcare is available from 7:30 AM- 6 PM (Monday-Thursday) and 7:30 AM- 5PM on Fridays. Chanen Preschool’s core program begins at 9 AM. Naptime is offered from 1 PM- 3 PM. For 3s and PreK students, Enrichment classes are available from 1:15 – 2 PM. These additions classes allow students to experience sports, supplemental art, science, musical theater, cooking and more.
Chanen Preschool is the only Jewish Preschool in the Valley with an art studio and a dedicated Art Specialist. Students visit “Austin’s Art Studio” on a weekly basis and engage in age-appropriate art education.
In addition to our curriculum, we offer PE, Hebrew, Music and Movement. Every Friday morning, an all school Shabbat gathers in the Chapel. Through music, family involvement, and full participation, Chanen Preschoolers are immersed in this Jewish practice. Monthly evening Tot-Shabbats are hosted by each age level. Preschool students and their families celebrate Shabbat as a community at 5:30 PM with a 15-20 minute service followed by dinner.
Throughout the summer and during Winter Break, Camp Simcha offers families additional childcare. We offer a full summer and winter camp program, extending to 4th graders.
Join us in cultivating our future Jewish leaders.
