Congregation Netivot Shalom Preschool seeks to create a stimulating and enriching educational environment for each and every child.
We are devoted to helping children learn socialization skills, building their self-confidence and teaching them the preliminary skills to explore and experience the world independently from their parents.
In addition, we seek to ignite a spark in each child to lay claim to her or his Jewish heritage and commit him or her to a lifetime passion for learning.

Shalom Nachshonim families,
Last week was short but we had plenty of time for lots of activities. Here are the highlights of last weeks events in the kitah.

-On Wednesday we played with sticky foam and scissors at the table.
-We noticed that the carrot tops we had placed in water that had regrown green leaves was not watered over the break the carrot tops shriveled up and the leaves wilted. When we talked about what we saw and what happened, one child said "that's sad".
-We noticed that the gzarim(carrots) that are growing in the yard have vanished. Something hungry has been eating them.
-We watered our succulents that got very thirsty over the break
-We swapped out some toys in the kitah. We now have wooden cars and wooden street signs. We also pulled out colorful wooden blocks.
-On a rainy Thursday we played in the social hall and out in the courtyard to run on the wet cement. We also got to share the Nevonim Kitah with our friends in there.
-We got to see our guinea pigs again! We cleaned their cage on Friday.
-On Friday we found some older children from the Shu Ren School that use classrooms upstairs out in the play yard doing an experiment with the boats they had made and tubs of water. We then got to play with the water tubs when they were all done and gone.
-On Friday before pretend Shabbat Anna played musical chairs with a group of children in the social hall.

We are excited to start a new week and we are looking forward to sharing with you what we are up to.
Shavuah tov,
Ofra and Anna
