Beginners at Rodeph Sholom School
(Formerly Learning Together and Apart)
Beginners at Rodeph Sholom School is an early learning program offered to children who are not yet enrolled in school, but are ready for a separated and more structured school experience.

These classes last two and a half hours, and run Tuesdays and Thursdays with a special Shabbat celebration on Thursdays.

The children will be encouraged to participate in a variety of activities in our specially designed toddler classroom. Choices will include: art projects, block building, dramatic play, play dough, sand and water play.
Running, jumping, climbing and tumbling are a necessary part of any young child's physical development. Our playgrounds, both indoors and out, are designed to facilitate children's gross motor development while they play together.
Singing together, reading together, learning to take turns and be in a group with peers all create the fabric of a shared experience in a classroom. Each day we will have snack time and a circle time, which will introduce children to the excitement of being part of a group.
The Second Semester of Beginners will run from February 1st, 2021 to June 9th, 2022. Registration for this semester is contingent on an Early Notice application and enrollment into Rodeph Sholom School’s 5 Day program for 2022-23
If your child is too young to meet the age requirements for Beginners

, including Learning Together (see below).
