Ann Newman Preschool

Temple Sinai’s Ann Newman Preschool, a staple in the community for over 50 years, offers a comprehensive, developmentally-based program allowing each child to reach his or her individual potential while embracing the values and traditions of Judaism.

Our program, serving children 6 weeks through 5 years, is creative and nurturing, and utilizes theories and practices at the forefront of the field of Early Childhood Education.

We work to foster self-confidence, independence, social competence, and readiness skills that provide a strong foundation for success in school and society.  Enhanced programming includes music/movement, science, social studies, Hebrew, math, language arts and cooking as part of our daily activities.

Focusing on the whole-child, we recognize each child’s individuality while supporting his/her development of self-esteem, social confidence and competence, and cognitive and physical skills.
