Curriculum & Approach

Wilshire Boulevard Temple’s Nursery Schools offer developmental curriculum for children aged 18-months through five years old. Our program, accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), challenges and empowers all children to reach their potential. We provide hands-on experience in language arts, science, math, fine art, music, movement, gardening, cooking, and Judaic Studies. Our educational approach combines the best practices in the field of early childhood development with the inspired philosophy of Reggio Emilia, Montessori, and High Scope.

Together, our curriculum, planned activities, and daily experiences are designed to respect the total child, be flexible to meet each child’s individual needs, and stimulate learning in all developmental areas: intellectual, social, physical, and emotional. We joyfully celebrate our holidays and teach Jewish values, including the commandments of tikkun olam (repairing the world) and tzedakah (charity). Our children learn our traditions, our prayers, and their place in our community.
