IMG_0931Is an enriched education important to you?

To nurture the whole child is to expose the child to endless possibility, to spark creative expression and then allow it to flourish. The development of self-confidence and the awareness of ones abilities on every level is essential to reaching one’s full potential. Our classrooms themselves provide a specially prepared environment that is filled with activities and objects that allow the children to explore their worlds in ways which are appropriate for them. Explore the Casa and the Elementary programs to find out more about our truly enriched classrooms. At MJDS, we offer a special blend of programming that helps children reach this potential through activities outside their regular classroom routine. These enhance both the Montessori aspect of their learning, and reinforce what the children are experiencing in Judaic Studies.
