Our Philosophy

We take a play based and child-centered approach to provide a “hands—on” learning experience.  The curriculum that we have developed is focused on four areas:  Social Emotional, Cognitive, and Physical Play. In addition, our programs are rich with Jewish cultural experiences.  Weaved into our days are the Jewish values we encourage.  Shabbat and all celebrations are focused on friendship and Tikkun Olam 
​(repairing our world).  

Our Mission

It is the mission of Temple Ahavat Shalom’s Krieger Early Childhood Center to provide developmentally appropriate activities and enriched experiences in a safe, nurturing, Judaic environment that encourages all children to explore and discover their expanding world so that they may successfully transition to school.
