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.

P.S. - I would like to thank everyone that supported me while I was healing.  Thank you to the wonderful subs that assisted Anna in the classroom and thank you to the parents that have extended themselves to me and off course to the rest of the faculty.  I feel grateful to be part of this great community.
