Nursery School

Since 1993, the CSI Nursery School has provided our youngest students with the perfect blend of secular and Jewish learning in a warm, nurturing atmosphere that encourages the development of the whole child.

Our highly experienced teachers create a learning environment based on support for individual needs, hands-on activity, socialization and creative learning. We teach about and celebrate Shabbat and holidays through music, story telling, dance, art, cooking and family programming.

There is nothing sweeter than the sight and sound of our Nursery School children belting out the “Frog” song in preparation for Pesach, or watching them grow from tentative 2’s to confident and caring 4’s during their years at CSI.

Philosophy & Objectives:

Congregation Sons of Israel Nursery School is a Jewish Nursery School. The primary purpose of the program is to provide a quality Jewish educational environment for young children using the New York Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects. Our programs are designed to foster Jewish identity and personal growth and development in preschool age children. The Nursery School program has the following objectives:

  • To provide a warm, nurturing environment that encourages the development of the whole child.
  • To provide an environment based on successful experiences which encourages all children to develop a healthy self-concept and positive self-esteem.
  • To offer an environment that encourages children to develop their capabilities and interests at their own pace and according to their individual needs.
  • To promote social development by helping children become aware of the needs and feelings of others and by developing their ability to interact and play cooperatively with other children.
  • To offer a program which recognizes the uniqueness of each and every child and provides positive encouragement for the child’s continued growth.
  • To provide an environment that allows the child the opportunity to learn by doing – moving from concrete hands-on experiences to more abstract concept development.
  • To provide opportunities to develop a lifetime of creative living and learning.
  • To expose children to Hebrew language, Israel, Jewish culture and traditions.  In addition, Bible stories, holidays, Shabbat and customs through experiences that include drama, art, cooking, dance and storytelling.
