Early Childhood through Grade 8

As studies have shown, an ECC-Grade 8 model for learning creates stability for students, especially as they grow and go through the changes associated with young adolescence. At Hillel, this academic setting fosters a stronge sense of community, where students look out for one another, teachers who have known students since kindergarten become like family, and cross-grade collaboration opportunities abound, such as having older students read to younger children and share holiday activities with them.

You’ll feel the joy and vitality from the moment you step into the Early Childhood Center, where experienced teachers provide a creative blend of Jewish and academic programming in an active, play-based curriculum. As part of an ECC-8 school, not only do our youngest children have access to extensive resources and specialty teachers, but they are embraced by a kind, caring community of enthusiastic youth and supportive adults.

As your child grows, he or she will find inspiring mentors among Hillel’s students, teachers, families and friends. In turn, your child will become a leader of character, aware of the responsibility of being a role model to all.
“Having older kids interact with the younger kids builds skills on both sides:  empathy from the big kids who remember being the 'little' kid and, perhaps more importantly, the reminder that they are role models and should act accordingly.  For the younger kids, these 'big' kids are fun and cool and really, a special treat to have around. I cannot think of another school where siblings can enjoy their academic years together.  My children have a connection almost daily and it always involves a hug, or if they're in the library and the other is out in the hallway, a proud wave.” - Karen Rosenberg, Parent
