About DiscoverEd Curriculum

This innovative curriculum which is specifically designed for Jewish Preschools was written and developed by Chanie Wilschanski a preschool teacher and director with a Masters in Special Education and Early Childhood. She has used her own experiences as a teacher and director to develop Judaic and Secular curriculum full of activites which help our students learn to their fullest potential.

Our philosophy is deeply rooted in the belief that the early years of a child’s life are critical to developing a foundation of positive self-worth. The preschool environment cultivates this belief by making every child feel valued, encouraging social awareness and interaction, fostering creativity and providing opportunities for developing gross and fine motor, visual, and auditory skills.

Learning through Jewish eyes:

 

We encourage the children to see the world through Jewish eyes, building an understanding and respect for Jewish values and tradition that extend far beyond the classroom. We also focus on establishing a strong Jewish identity and teaching the children about being proud of their Jewish heritage.

 

We learn our morning prayers, recite blessings over foods, sing Jewish songs and learn about the weekly Torah portions and upcoming Jewish holidays. Fridays are especially special with challah making and Shabbat Parties.
