Parent Testimonials

Temple Emanu El has been a wonderful preschool for our three children! We love that the school offers a rich introduction to Jewish culture and tradition, while remaining open to families of all faiths and backgrounds. Over the years our children have developed social and emotional skills, and formed a strong sense of community with their peers and teachers. The school has nurtured our children to ensure that they are happy, healthy, safe, while learning through play. Having healthy lunch and snacks provided, allowing for a flexible schedule that accommodates our work, and providing a caring and supportive staff continue to make this preschool the best fit for us!

When our oldest son started at TEE, he was only 4 months old. It was a smooth transition back to full-time work knowing he was loved, safe, and cared for by each of his teachers! Each year, his teachers helped him grow, fostering his curious and creative mind while helping him to gain confidence with making new friends. Both our boys have enjoyed and benefited from the Jewish songs & traditions they have learned, coming home excited to share what they did in their introductory Hebrew lessons and weekly Shabbat with the temple’s Rabbi & Cantor! We love that the play-based curriculum is preparing the boys with the knowledge and skill-sets they will need in kindergarten while meeting their emotional and social needs!

As first time parents, dropping our son off for day care was incredibly difficult. The staff at Temple Emanu El made it such a smooth transition for our family. From the start, we truly felt like the teachers knew our son and had his best interests in mind. He is happy when we drop him off and happy when we pick him up. What more could we ask for?
