A Note from the Director of Early Childhood

Welcome to Hillel Torah! As your family’s first introduction into the Hillel Torah family, I would like to share the beauty of the thriving, growing, nurturing and interactive learning spaces in our Preschool and Kindergarten classrooms.

It is my distinct pleasure to lead a team of devoted professionals who dedicate themselves to ensuring that your child receives the very best foundation in both General and Judaic Studies. Our Early Childhood expert educators are devoted and supportive role models encouraging the emerging potential and natural curiosity of each child as they become independent learners and thinkers.

In our warm and nurturing atmosphere, children begin to understand and appreciate that we are one community working together to create an environment for every child to thrive.

Our days are filled with engaging and meaningful learning experiences as the children are encouraged to learn, explore and discover in a developmentally appropriate way. Our program lays the groundwork for a lifetime of integrated learning. Judaic and General Studies are seamlessly blended into an interdisciplinary program encompassing the chagim, tefillot and middot with the exploration of literacy, math, music, art and physical activities.

Our Early Childhood Program creates the foundation for the strong education our children receive at Hillel Torah. I invite you to come visit our Early Childhood classrooms and see us in action. Once you experience the sounds of our children learning, laughing and singing you will realize the unique experience that is our Hillel Torah Early Childhood Community.

I look forward to welcoming your family.

Children in preschool learn through play and open-ended activities, allowing them the opportunity to explore the world around them, ask questions, and discover how things work. Our developmental approach to education focuses on the process rather than the product, allowing the children space to be their authentic selves and the confidence to make their own decisions.


Our developmental approach to education allows our Kindergarteners opportunities to build on their foundational Preschool experiences while exploring the world around them, asking questions, and discovering new things. We continue to expand and develop strong math and early literacy skills. Our kindergartners learn through engaging and interactive lessons and activities where they are encouraged to develop independence as they become problem solvers and critical thinkers.
