Welcome to the Institute of Jewish Education Early Childhood Center | Preschool

A Brief Introduction

The early childhood years are wonderful, almost miraculous: it is a time of growth, curiosity, investigation and accomplishment. We are proud to share this time with you and your family. Beginning school for the first time is the start of a critical new stage in life. We are helping your child to expand his/her world, to work and play with new ideas. The educative process in early childhood captures the child at the peak of his/her formative years in both value building and identity formation.

A Few Nice Words About Our School

“I don’t know if you are open to a diverse (and non-denominational) Jewish preschool, but we were thrilled with the Institute of Jewish Education on 3rd St. at Flores (near Orlando ). Right on the WeHo/ Beverly Hills border.

Very reasonable cost, outstanding instruction and Nancy Berkowitz, the director, was amazing. She ran the Temple Emanuel preschool for many years, but this school is not affiliated with a temple, so you don’t need to join one. Many couples were interfaith, and some were international.

The children played in a large courtyard enclosed from the street, the curriculum facilitated their development, and I am amazed at how few people know about this gem.”
