The program includes the use of our private playground, a large muscle room, music and gym classes, daily art, science, math, social studies and literature activities.
Temple Emanu El’s Preschool is a Step Up To Quality Star Rated school, meaning that our preschool exceeds Ohio’s childcare licensing standards ranking us among the most highly rated Jewish preschools in the Greater Cleveland Area. Our classrooms have lower staff to child ratios; all staff have specialized training and continuing education throughout the year; and our curriculum is aligned with Ohio's kindergarten readiness requirements. When you contact our preschool, be sure to ask about our 3 star ranking and what that means for the quality of care provided to your child.
