Nierman Preschool develops the social, emotional, physical, and intellectual well-being of each child through our developmental milestone curriculum. We have created a safe, nurturing environment that offers opportunities for exploration and discovery, and are committed to providing access to programs for children with disabilities. We are connected to JCC preschools across the nation in embracing and redefining excellence in early childhood education by utilizing Jewish elements and lenses as our framework for daily activities. This has served to reinforce our long-standing tradition of a strong Judaic curriculum.
School activities and programs are greatly enhanced by the enthusiastic support of our active Nierman Preschool Committee. Parents are invited to be involved in the classrooms and on committees including green committee, room parents, health and safety, and special programs. Joyous family holiday celebrations are planned throughout the school year in addition to classroom festivities. Participation at the school offers a rewarding way to be more involved with your child and to meet other families.
Our Glickman-Galinson Early Childhood Education Complex houses sixteen classrooms, a central outdoor playground, a separate toddler/two year old playground, a Children’s Garden Sanctuary, a kitchen and a STEM lab. Classes also utilize the Astor Judaica Library, David and Dorothea Garfield Theater and the Jacobs Family Gymnasium.
