Welcome!      !   ברוך הבא  

 

We are so happy that you are exploring Shaloh House’s Barbara F. Guzovsky Preschool Program for your child! At Shaloh House, our goals are to help children develop into well- educated Americans and proud Jews who are knowledgeable about their rich heritage, by providing them with academic and spiritual tools which will serve them throughout their lives.

 

Our preschool program offers a unique educational experience for students in metro Boston: we combine a love for Judaism and Torah study with outstanding secular academics, focusing in particular on mathematics and the sciences. Shaloh House is made up of a diverse community of learners: many of our children are first-generation Americans, with a majority of our children bi- and tri-lingual. We are an inclusive Jewish community that focuses on Jewish unity and respect for each family’s Jewish identity; our Judaic Studies curriculum is taught from an Orthodox perspective, and our students and their families represent the full range of the Jewish community today, from non-observant to Orthodox.

The school’s dynamic environment and unique approach fosters students’ curiosity, cultivates their imagination, encourages creative expression, values their initiative, and engenders critical thinking skills. Our caring and nurturing teachers are role models for the values we cultivate in our children. Our low student-to-teacher ratio translates into personal attention and customized lessons where children progress rapidly at their own level. Children also benefit from our arts and crafts, music, computers, and gymnastics programs – each of which features fun-education components with experienced teachers. Award-winning academic excellence and commitment to Jewish values combine with a warm community spirit to make the Shaloh House an extraordinary place for children to learn and thrive. We look forward to answering any questions you might have, and to welcoming you and your families into our wonderful educational community.
