New Outdoor Playspace Coming Spring 2019!
Beth Emet programs for young children (birth to five years old) engage children and families in a variety of Jewish experiences from classroom education to holiday celebrations. We commit to creating a stimulating, nurturing, compassionate environment that builds on children’s curiosity and love of learning, and enriches all areas of children’s development. We provide a high-quality learning experience, integrating Jewish values and traditions into a play-based curriculum. Our program strives to build partnerships with parents and to foster a community in which families feel supported and connected to each other, the staff, and Beth Emet Synagogue.
We are now scheduling individual tours for prospective parents during the school day. Please email Kathy or call 847-869-4230 ext. 305 to schedule your visit and learn more about our program offerings.
Currently, we have scattered openings available in all age groups. We welcome and encourage your application. If you are interested in scheduling a tour, please contact Kathy Kaberon or 847-869-4230 ext. 305. We look forward to hearing from you!

Madregot and G’dolim students enjoy a rich school experience, with an emphasis on supporting each child as they discover and articulate their own ideas and feelings, and simultaneously develop a growing appreciation and empathy for other children’s’ point of view. Problem-solving, relationship building, and collaboration are navigated and processed thoughtfully as children’s social dynamics flourish. Jewish holidays, values and traditions are embraced, along with a fun introduction to Hebrew. Woven throughout are literature, art, drama, music, math, science, social studies, and movement. The classroom curriculum evolves as the children’s friendships and interests grow through the year.
