P.A.L. – Play and Learn, parent/tot class

Our PAL program provides children, 18 months to 2 ½ years, an opportunity to explore a wide range of preschool activities, including sensory, motor, art, social, language experiences, and Shabbat under the supervision of a teacher and their accompanying parent or significant adult. Emphasis is placed upon exposing children to fun and inviting activities in a small group setting, providing a social outlet for the children as well as their adult companion. Everyone is welcome.
