The Pre-Alyth group (run by parents) is a fantastic way for our younger children to meet others from their class before kindergarten begins. We invite our newcomers to visit the Kindergarten and set up their classroom for them to allow them to get used to their environment, meet their peers and teachers.
Parents and children are also invited to join us during Shabbat on Fridays. For our youngest members, it may take some time for the child to be totally comfortable in a group environment, to seek our teachers for support and to develop increased peer social skills. To ease this transition at the beginning of the term, a parent or consistent caregiver may be encouraged to remain in the classroom with the child until the teaching staff indicates that a separation from this primary adult is appropriate and can be comfortably accomplished.
