DIVISIONS

EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION

Early childhood is a time of accelerated development and Maayan cultivates learning to the highest degree via a happy, loving, and warm environment. Children experience first hand the joy of our Jewish world through music, play, imaginative play, sensory and social experiences.

PRESCHOOL

Every child deserves a warm and pleasant atmosphere that fosters a love for learning about the world around them.  Children are natural scientists.  They are curious about the world, and love to experiment with all aspects of their environment.  Every child can succeed when given ample opportunities to explore & learn.
