The Selma Maisel Nursery School of Temple Sholom

An introduction to learning where children can explore, become independent, develop friendships, and cultivate a sense of Jewish heritage

 

   

 

  

 

With a hands-on, creative curriculum that fosters learning through play, the Selma Maisel Nursery School program provides rich preschool experiences in which children learn and grow through individual and group activities, such as storytelling, painting, music and movement, book publishing, Handwriting Without Tears®, sensory tables, block building, enrichment programs, and our Discovery Room.

Through Israeli dance, holidays and festivals, and the weekly Shabbat celebration, our children gain an appreciation for their Jewish identity. All of our teachers are professionally qualified to work with preschool children and are dedicated to bringing out the best in each child. Specialized staff visits the school on a weekly rotating basis, including a storyteller, a gym coordinator, an Israeli dancer, and a wildlife educator. Rabbi Mitch and Cantor Asa are also frequent visitors to our classrooms and provide an engaging introduction to Jewish culture.

The nursery school is a place of community and fun, where families are welcome. Our window-filled classrooms are spaces of natural light, bursting with color. Our walls and displays are print-rich providing exposure to words and labels, songs and poems. As preschoolers progress from 2-to-3-to-4 years old their classrooms increase in size and number of students, providing a comfortable adjustment into kindergarten. We take full advantage of the resources available to us at the Temple, including the Social Hall and playground for releasing exuberant energy and the library for quiet "reading" and thought.
