RYNJ’s Preschool students learn a lot each day. Their days are filled with hands-on learning, a rich curriculum, multisensory experiences and play. While teaching Parsha, literacy, holidays, science and so much more, RYNJ puts emphasis on helping their youngest learners grow socially and emotionally. Led by the preschool social worker, Morah Jodi Senter, the pre-K and kindergarten students enjoy interactive puppet shows, songs, games and even some yoga, to teach them to harness their energy and reach their potential. Morah Jodi focuses on listening skills, how to pay attention and get along with others. Themes taught throughout the year include empathy, identifying and managing emotions, friendship skills and problem solving. Children look forward to practicing their skills in small groups at Lunch Bunch, through guided activities in their classroom and of course put their skills to use in everyday scenarios.
