At Congregation B’nai Israel’s Nadel Center for Early Childhood Education, we understand that our normal school hours might not coincide with your day or work schedule, therefore we offer morning and after school care for our students. There is one morning program and three different types of afternoon programs in our extended day offerings, each serving a different purpose.

Early Drop-Off Morning Care

Our Morning Care program is designed for parents who would like to drop off their child earlier than 9:15 am. Children will participate in free-play activities including manipulative play, imaginative play, and art. Drop-off for this program will be in the Feldman Children’s Library beginning at 7:30 am. Working parents appreciate the convenience of being able to go to work knowing that their child is in a safe and loving environment.

Extended Play

Our Extended Play program is designed for our two-year old children that are enrolled in a class that dismisses at 12:30 pm. This program extends your child’s day, allowing you to pick them up at 1:30 pm. Children will participate in free-play activities including manipulative play, imaginative play, and art.

Enrichment

Our Enrichment Program offers a wide variety of fun and exciting after school classes for your child. Classes such as Tennis, Basketball, Soccer and Karate (just to name a few) are offered to enhance gross motor skills. Classes such as Art, Science and Gardening allow children to use their fine motor and cognitive thinking skills. With 4 to 5 classes offered each afternoon, there is always something for every child!

For those children who attend a half day of school, the program is designed to provide extra activities after 1:35 p.m. Children will have a rest period and a snack time, and will be able to choose one or two enrichment activities for the afternoon. If you choose one activity, your child will be ready to go home at 2:45 pm. If you choose two activities, they will be ready to go home at 3:10 pm.

For children who attend a full day of school, the Enrichment classes run from 3:15 pm until 4:00 pm.

After Care

This program is designed for parents who would like to pick up their child after regular school hours. Children will eat a snack and participate in free-play activities including manipulative play, imaginative play, playground, water play, and art. This program runs from 3:15 pm to 6:00 pm. It is designed for children who are involved in two enrichment programs or a full day class.
