JPS has something every family, including half day and full day programs, year-round care, and part time programming. We also offer an exciting enrichment program which is available for 3 and 4 year old students three afternoons each week. We offer a variety of activities which rotate each semester, including soccer, tennis, art, cooking, lego, and more!
One of our new enrichment classes this year was Masters in the Making, an art program put together by our 4’s teacher, Ms. Jessica. Masters in the Making is an art program designed to teach children about the great artists throughout history. Beginning with ancient times, the children were introduced to a series of artists and artistic styles that shaped the history of art. Each class introduced the children to an artist and featured a project inspired by that artist. From ancient Egypt calligraphy through the contemporary Pop Art of Andy Warhol, Masters in the Making exposed the children to artistic movements, styles and the great Master artists that changed the art world.
This semester, we will be launching ‘Kids in the Kosher Kitchen’ with our very own Ms. Ericka. The children will be able to cultivate their culinary skills and create traditional Jewish recipes. They will practice measuring, mixing, and exploring cause and effect through the lens of food. Some of the recipes we will work on will be kugel, Israeli salad, chicken soup and of course challah! This will give children a positive experience with kosher food preparation while nourishing their minds, bodies, and spirits.
