Open houses at the Leonard & Syril Rubin Nursery School at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades are planned for November 18, December 9, and January 13, at 9:30 a.m.
The Leonard and Syril Rubin Nursery School at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades features a warm, child-centered environment rooted in Jewish tradition, where children can become confident, responsible, and successful learners. Parents of prospective students can meet the director, learn about the school and its curriculum, ask questions, tour the facilities, and spend time in the classrooms at the open houses.
The school provides innovative programming that allows children to explore and understand concepts in a fun, dynamic way. The goal is to enrich each child’s world through exposure to language arts, science, reading and math readiness, music, art, Judaic programming, physical education, and swimming. Nurturing social interaction is an integral part of all programs.
The curriculum includes cognitive learning and enrichment; fine and gross motor skills; reading readiness skills; sensory experiences; Judaic programming; art, music, dramatic play, and cooking; gym and swimming; and preparation for kindergarten. It is a state licensed, accredited program for children from 12 months to 5 years old, and it offers half, three-quarter, and full day sessions with extended day options for three or five days a week according to age.
Parents must be JCC members to enroll their children in the school. Limited scholarships are available. The JCC makes every effort to ensure that children are not denied enrollment because of their families’ inability to pay full tuition.
