Our Mission

The Mission of Tuvia Preschool is to enhance the learning and development of young children in a safe and caring Jewish environment. This is achieved through a curriculum designed to meet the individual needs of each child.


Philosophy & CURRICULUM

Tuvia School is a nurturing, responsive learning community where childhood is recognized and celebrated as a unique period of life that impacts all future development. Essential elements in this process include contributions of individuals, families, education professionals, synagogue leadership, and the wider community.

Our program recognizes that children learn and develop best as they interact within a safe environment where they feel competent and affirmed, and within an environment that they have helped to create.
Tuvia promotes learning through relationships that help children feel secure, and develop self-respect, respect for others, cooperation and responsibility for the community. The curriculum, infused with Jewish values and the teachings of our heritage, is based upon the best practices in the early childhood profession. The program goals include:

  • Development of skills and attitudes that lead to success in school
  • Creation of a sense of community
  • Affirmation of the individual child and family
  • Development of a Jewish identity
  • Understanding of an individual's responsibility and place in the larger community

Tuvia is an integral part of the larger Temple Menorah community that encourages life-long learning for children, families, congregants, educational professionals and the community at large.

Tuvia does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, national origin, sexual orientation or religion in its admission policies, educational process, or in any other school programs.



State Licensing Ratios are 1:12, but we prefer to maintain a lower student to teacher ratio.  Here are the ratios we strive to meet daily:

  • 2 year old classes - 1:6
  • 3 year old classes - 1:8
  • 4 year old classes - 1:10

Ratios are subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances but we will always maintain state licensing ratios.
