Chabad’s Oakland Preschool seeks to create a stimulating and enriching educational environment for each and every child. The school is devoted to helping children learn socialization skills, building their self-confidence and teaching them the preliminary skills to explore and experience the world independently from their parents. Our goal is to provide children with the early foundation and framework to prepare them for the transition to elementary school. In addition, we seek to ignite a spark in each child to lay claim to his Jewish heritage and commit him or her to a lifetime passion for learning.
Judaism underscores the uniqueness of every child with the axiom “chanoch l’naar al pi darko,” teaching us to train children according to their individual paths. We recognize that each child has his or her unique needs, interests and passions. Our children are viewed as collaborators: they are competent, curious, inquisitive, unique, and creative. Our school fosters children’s intellectual development as they are encouraged to explore their environment and express themselves through words, movement, drawing, painting, playing and other natural modes of expression. Our curriculum exposes children to a wide range of experiences including art, movement, pre-writing and reading skills, social and early math skills, which are all integrated into our hands-on leaning, and promotes an environment where children develop the critical thinking and problem solving skills for a successful and meaningful life.
