Discovery-Driven Learning That Honors Jewish Values
At the OFJCC Leslie Family Preschool, children develop a thirst for knowledge, a love of learning and a strong identity.
Our innovative, constructivist education is inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach and a belief in children's capabilities. We nurture a child's inherent curiosity and creativity through play and experiential learning in a caring and beautiful environment.
We celebrate the Jewish tradition of inquiry and we foster Jewish values and traditions, while welcoming families of diverse backgrounds and faiths and honoring each child's individuality.
Our unique education is rooted in play-based inquiry and discovery, inspired by Reggio Emilia and informed by Jewish values.Learn More
