Robert J. Wilf Preschool & Kindergarten

ROBERT J. WILF PRESCHOOL & KINDERGARTEN



The Robert J. Wilf Preschool and Kindergarten at the Kaiserman JCC in Wynnewood offers a nurturing, child-centered environment.  Infants through accredited Kindergarten classes are complemented by gym & music class, Israeli dance, weekly Shabbat celebration and more. The teaching staff honors the uniqueness of each child, celebrating individual potential, and helping children question and discover. Maintaining a high standard of excellence is supported by teachers’ participation in professional development.  The emergent curriculum permits learning activities that arise from each child’s interests, encouraging feelings of security and confidence in an age-appropriate atmosphere where each child feels free to explore, play, observe, question and make discoveries. Jewish heritage, values and traditions are celebrated, instilling a positive identity in each child.

Plus, tuition includes a family membership to the JCC which enables you to participate in all the activities and programs we have to offer. Members have full use of our fitness center, indoor & outdoor pools, walking/running track, basketball gym, and so much more. Call 610-896-7770, x 100 for more information.

We offer Late Care from 3:30 - 6pm each afternoon for families who need care after the end of the school day. Your child will enjoy dynamic activities such as art, music, games, story time and indoor and outdoor play. A kosher snack is provided. Children who are enrolled in an after-school class such as swim or gymnastics will be escorted to and from class. Both extended day programs are supervised by experienced members of our staff.
