With the opportunity to experience a “hands-on” approach to life and learning, your child will receive the best in Early Childhood Education. Silverman Preschool is dedicated to providing a comprehensive and nurturing program, with outstanding teachers in a warm, loving environment. While helping each child to discover his or her individuality, we also build an awareness of being part of the larger community. In an atmosphere rich in Jewish heritage and tradition, we offer your child endless opportunities for growth and expression. We welcome you to Silverman Preschool, where the joy of life and learning is celebrated every day! The skills developed under this philosophy will serve your child for a lifetime.

Children do not need to be potty trained to attend our school.
Our infant program opened in February, 2015. The program runs from 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (5:00 p.m. on Fridays), and we maintain a ratio of 1 teacher to 4 infants. The children range in age from 6 weeks to 2 years old. The teachers plan a variety of activities including arts and crafts, outdoor exploring, music, and special guests. We do our best to ensure that each individual child’s needs are met, and we organize a schedule that works for you and your child. Please inquire for more information.
*Our infant program has limited availability for the 2018 – 2019 school year. Please email Amy for more information..
After School Enrichment:
After school enrichment programs are offered on a regular basis, such as Capoeira, Dance, Tumbling, Cooking, Art techniques, Perk club (a physical education program), Yoga, Playball, and Kindermusik. We also offer an extended day option for children ages 3-5, as an alternative to napping. Enrichment programs vary each session.
Meals and Snack:
A nutritious snack is planned daily for the children, which included at least 2 food groups. All snacks and food we provide will remain peanut and tree nut free, to accommodate any allergies. Decisions about each individual classroom will be made on a yearly basis. Teachers are encouraged to cook with the children, and expose them to new foods and experiences. We encourage healthy eating, and we even plant fruits and vegetables in our very own garden.
Music, Yoga, and Playball:
Music is an integral part of the preschool’s curriculum, with a music specialist visiting twice a month. In addition, Rabbi Rosenthal joins the children on Fridays with his accordion to bring the Shabbat songs to life. We invite our Yoga specialist every other week, as well as Playball (sports skills for life) for our children ages 2 – Pre-K. Additionally, we welcome special visitors in our infant class to sing songs, play instruments, or do specialized activities with our youngest Preschoolers.
Hebrew and Judaica:
As a Jewish preschool, we hope to teach our children about the Jewish holidays, customs and traditions. We sing songs, learn Hebrew words, and create art. All of our teachers implement curriculum and activities that reflect the Jewish culture and customs, with a special emphasis on holidays, songs, and traditions.
Shabbat and Holiday Programs:
Shabbat and Holiday programs familiarize young children with synagogue life and experiences, helping them develop a warmth and understanding for Jewish home rituals and holiday celebrations. Families are included in special holiday celebrations and performances throughout the year.
