Jewish values and traditions drive the school curriculum, environment, and culture. Basic precepts such as respect for others, kindness, being a constructive member of a community, tzedakah, and practicing mitzvot are integrated into daily routines and interactive play. By doing so, we seek to create a stimulating and enriching educational environment that will ignite a spark in each child to lay claim to his or her Jewish heritage and commit him or her to a lifetime passion for learning. The Center City Jewish Preschool is dedicated to educating children from a broad range of Jewish backgrounds and observances. Our educational approach is guided by our recognition and respect for the unique qualities of each child. We recognize that each child has his or her unique needs, interests and passions. Our children are viewed as collaborators: they are competent, curious, inquisitive, unique, and creative. Each child who enters the school becomes a treasured member of our preschool family.
