The Shorefront Y's Preschool Program offers a high quality, safe & nurturing environment. Our developmentally appropriate and challenging educational curriculum integrates learning opportunities with high expectations. Daily activities provide a solid foundation of skills, knowledge, and values in accordance with each child’s needs, backgrounds, and abilities. Lessons are filled with discovery, exploration, excitement, and enthusiastic hands-on learning. Our classrooms are fully equipped with age-appropriate furniture, instructional materials, and toys. Our spacious, private, oceanfront outdoor playground promotes active, creative, imaginative and sensory play. We bring Jewish values and traditions into our classes as well as customs and believes of each family.  Russian speaking teachers, family engagement and family-style holiday celebrations are an integral part of each class.  Students, families and staff are treated with dignity and respect.
