SHABBAT

MORNING

PRESCHOOL

by Rebecca Krantz, preschool@bethmeyer.org

Preschool Director

The new school year at Beth Meyer Preschool is

officially upon us. Each day, our school is filled with

learning, laughter, and love from our students and

staff. This year, our school is bursting with new

faces, both students and staff, but we still have a

little room left.

If you are interested in either our 3-year-old or 4-

year-old program, please reach out to learn about

our remaining openings. Additionally, the preschool

is continuing its search for the perfect teacher for

our very youngest students. If you know someone

with an early childhood education background,

please send them our way. We look forward to

another amazing year!

We are pleased to announce that we have resumed

offering Shabbat morning childcare for children

ages 2 years through 2nd grade, beginning at 9:30

a.m. We offer a supervised play space for children

as well as Shabbat stories and songs. Children are

requested to wear face-coverings. This is an

evolving program, so we are looking for feedback

and suggestions!

CHILDCARE

We can’t talk about Shabbat morning childcare

without taking a moment to thank Phyllis Diehl.

Her role in the lives of our children is changing;

although she won’t be the primary caregiver on

Shabbat mornings any longer, she will still be

around for stories, hugs, and kindness rocks. If you

have a favorite memory of Phyllis, we would love to

hear it, and so would she! Email

laureni@bethmeyer.org with your stories.

Above and right:

The play space is

located on the

lower level of the

main building, at

the far end of the

hallway and is

loaded with toys,

games and

activities.
