Congregation Kol Shofar is proud to be home to
the Southern Marin Jewish Community Preschool
|Located on the uniquely beautiful Congregation Kol Shofar campus, the Southern Marin Jewish Community Preschool is a vibrant program created by the Early Childhood Education department of the Osher Marin JCC. It is founded on the tradition of excellence in Jewish early childhood education and enriched by spiritual environment of Congregation Kol Shofar. Jewish values include concepts of respect, honoring others
The curriculum is built on the image of the child as a competent and capable individual with the potential to construct his or her knowledge about the world, and inspired by the educational practices of the schools in Reggio Emilia, Italy. The program provides a sacred place of intentionality where wonder and curiosity fill the environment; teachers and children collaborate to explore big ideas and possibilities.
We reflect Jewish culture by organically integrating values, traditions, and customs into the curriculum through music, language, literature expressive arts, cooking, dance and play. The Southern Marin Jewish Community Preschool creates opportunities for parents and teachers to grow and learn about child development, parenting, and Jewish life as part of a diverse and connected community.
Serving children ages 2-5, our preschool offers the following programs:
