Pre-K @ SSA

Our mission is to prepare children of all faiths for a lifetime of learning.  Solomon Schechter Academy, in partnership with Beth El Nursery School, provides a full day preschool program up to five days a week.  We encourage children in learning, exploring, and discovering their environment in a child-centered, nurturing atmosphere.

Secular Enrichment

Our secular enrichment focuses on the areas of science and social studies, while also building the pre-literacy and math skills necessary for kindergarten readiness in a relaxed, play-centered environment.  The children learn and explore through hands-on activities and experiments, imaginative play, outdoor exploration, arts & crafts, and more.  Daily story time, weekly visits to our school library, and music instruction complete the program.
