be learning ec madregot

Madregot is our preschool class for children three years old (by September 1). Children enjoy a rich school experience, including literature, art, drama, music, math, science, social studies, and Jewish learning. Teachers support social interactions, play, collaboration, relationship-building, and problem solving within the class community. In addition, Lunch Bunch includes enrichment classes such as science, art, drama and movement. Parents can either provide lunch or order catered lunch. Our Early Birds (drop off at 8:00 a.m.) offer more child care options for busy parents.

Options For Madregot:

  • 5 days (Monday-Friday)
  • 4 days (Tuesday through Friday)

Early Bird: 8:00 – 9:15 a.m.
Class: 9:15 – 11:45 a.m.
Lunch Bunch: 11:45 a.m. – 1:15 p.m. 

New Lunch Bunch Hours for 2017-2018! 
All Madregot and G’dolim students are encouraged to extend the school day with longer Lunch Bunch (11:45 am-1:15pm.), where children and their teachers will dine together, with lunches from home, and extend the socialization and learning. You select the days your child will stay for lunch! See the registration form for details.

Throughout the year we will also offer enrichment classes such as yoga, drama, cooking, science or gymnastics, which will take place during Lunch Bunch. Sign up for Lunch Bunch now and there’s no extra cost for enrichment classes. Details on the enrichment classes are coming in August. Children (and parents!) love this extended school experience!
