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!
We had a very fun week of learning and exploring. We prepared for and celebrated Purim this week. Here are the highlights of what occurred at school.
Purim activities:
-we painted wooden boxes to make Ra'ashanim/groggers.
-we put beans in our groggers. The children used them during the week at circle time. Ofra did a Purim puppet show at circle time and the children made lots of ra'ash/noise when we heard Haman's name. 
-we baked Oznei Haman/Hamentaschen cookies. Oznei Haman in Hebrew translates to Haman's ears.

-We went on a parade parade on Thursday morning with the Nevonim and some family members who joined us. We were invited to visit the Shu Ren preschool across the street and we shared songs with each other.
-Menachem came to sing Purim songs with the children outside in the play yard
-we took the hamantaschen we baked and we we made Mishloach Manot to take home.
-many of the children made crowns this week by taping two sheets of paper together.
Outdoor activites:
The children played and built with cardboard boxes out in the play yard.
-The children played with the river rocks.
- eucalyptus pods in the sensory table
-The rocking boat 
-blue water in the sensory table.
- After spending two weeks with the Nevonim children while Judy was away, Ofra was happy to return to the Nachshonim kitah with her friends. 
- Some of the children who arrive early had a chance to look at a book that Judy brought from Israel about transportation vehicles.
-The chidren have been using pens in the art area. 
- We hung some new art on the wall.
-Oliver's Savta/grandma spent a morning with us at school and assisted in the kitah.
We looking forward to seeing you and your children this coming week.
Shavuah Tov
