To our families and staff, Kehillah Early Learning Center isn’t an early childhood program, it is a home away from home. Located in Congregation Ohev Shalom, our nurturing and experienced staff know how to motivate children to learn; how to make learning fun; how to help children develop a love of learning. Content areas such as reading, math, science, and art are integrated into the curriculum. Parents are actively involved in the center and families develop strong ties that last many years. With an enclosed playground, we help develop healthy bodies and minds. The Ohev Shalom clergy and Kehillah staff join forces to enhance the cultural identity of our Jewish children. Our curriculum also includes multi-cultural celebrations and traditions of our children from many diverse the ethnic backgrounds.
