Kindergarten sets students on a joyful journey of discovery. We provide a nurturing environment for children to grow intellectually, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Our student-centered curriculum is infused with a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) and inquiry-based approach. We guide and empower our kindergartners to use their curiosity to become more independent thinkers. A multi-sensory approach using auditory, verbal, and kinesthetic activities, addresses the different ways in which children learn.
Our kindergartners have several opportunities to connect with the community during holiday assemblies, Kabbalat Shabbat, and welcoming guests. A highlight of our kindergarten program is when the children visit Sholom Home, an eldercare facility in the community, to entertain and interact with the residents. It is a heartwarming experience creating powerful memories across the generations.
Kindergartners are eligible to participate in a variety of after-school sports, arts, and special interest programs offered by both Heilicher and the Minnesota Jewish Community Center on the Barry Family Campus.
