Our Programs

Beth El Nursery School is a reform Jewish Preschool open to all children between the ages of two and five. We celebrate diversity and we do not discriminate in our enrollment policies or in any other practices on the basis of race, color, religion, sexual orientation, national origin or ancestry.

At BENS, we provide an ideal child to teacher ratio in each classroom.

Daily Schedule
Our core program beings at 9:00 am and ends each day at 1:00 pm. Extended care is available in the morning from 8:00 am – 9:00 am and in the afternoon until 3:30 pm or 6:00 pm.

Early Morning Program
The early birds program takes place in each of the classrooms and there will be one teacher to greet you and your child. During this time, children are welcome to bring their breakfast, participate in quiet activities or be a special helper.

Morning Program
Teachers greet and welcome each child to begin the day. The children participate in a variety of activities both inside and outside of the classroom. Each day, the outdoor classroom is set up with developmentally appropriate activities in our art studio, mud kitchen and loose parts block area. Jewish curriculum is an integral part of our program and woven into the children’s daily experience.

Extended Day Programs
Our early afternoon program (1:00 pm – 3:30 pm) provides a restful time for the children. The children are grouped based on whether or not they nap.  For non-nappers, quiet activities, such as books, art and other table top activities are provided. This restful time is followed by outdoor activities and an afternoon snack.
Children from each age group come together in the late afternoon program (3:30 pm – 6:00 pm) to enjoy the outdoor classroom, special art and cooking projects and a tea time snack.
