DJP Goals


Our goal is to create a wholesome, organic atmosphere that will engage and challenge your child.

  • To nourish your child’s heart and mind as we develop cognitive, social, emotional and physical skills.
  • To encourage self-confidence and individuality by helping young children to enhance their learning and socializing abilities.
  • To foster enthusiasm and responsibility for learning and to encourage each child’s natural creativity and curiosity.
  • To provide a curriculum geared to the different and developing interests of each child.
  • To provide a setting rich in materials and resources, a caring and highly qualified staff, a developmentally-appropriate program, and activities that are both teacher-guided and child-initiated.
  • To provide rich and meaningful Jewish content, including education about Jewish holidays, music, traditions and the Hebrew alphabet and language.
  • To share our philosophy, goals and program of the Downtown Jewish Preschool and to provide opportunities for parent involvement and education.
  • To enrich school experiences by using community resources and outside professionals in the field of early childhood education.
