At Etz Chaim Preschool, we believe that learning should be meaningful and relevant while taking place in the natural environment. The incorporation of nature into our classrooms and the understanding of Tikkun Olam, taking care of our world, while being a kehilla, community, is an important component in our curriculum.
Research shows that play is a key component in creating self–confident and competent individuals and we nurture the social, emotional, spiritual and academic development of our students while allowing physical activity and play to help drive the delivery of our curriculum. As part of our conservative synagogue, we incorporate Shabbat and holiday celebrations, as well as lessons reflecting the Torah, mitzvot and tzedakah into our daily routine. Understanding the needs of the whole child enables us to facilitate their readiness for school and for life.

Etz Chaim Preschool believes that all children deserve the opportunity to be children. We provide the environment and experiences to learn through play, based on the interests of the children. As learning should be meaningful and relevant, we guide children to grow through their interactions with their peers and teachers. Our goal is to help children grow to have a positive impact on others and the world.
