Mission Statement

Mission Statement

B’nai Israel Schilit Nursery School provides a stimulating, nurturing and supportive environment for young children ages 15 months – 5 years of age and their families. Through a multi-faceted approach to learning, our program focuses on all aspects of a child’s development – social, emotional, cognitive and physical – while respecting the individuality of each child. Inspired by a variety of teaching approaches and keeping current with changes in the early childhood world, our curriculum is influenced by the theories of Reggio Emilia, Constructivism, Piaget, Erikson, Gardner and Vygotsky.


Mission StatementAt B’nai Israel Schilit Nursery School, meaningful play is an essential part of our developmentally appropriate, high quality early childhood program. Engaging in activities centered on the child’s own interests brings a natural motivation to learn. Fostering independence, curiosity, creativity, discovery, critical thinking and problem solving, children are guided by our skilled teachers to explore classroom materials, building knowledge through cooperation and the expression of their thoughts and ideas. Nurturing these skills, our children become confident, inquisitive and self-guided learners who are prepared for the next step of academic and social development.


Our school provides a warm and welcoming community for all families. We build lasting relationships with the greater B’nai Israel community, as well as introducing the traditions of Jewish identity and life-long learning.
