The children in these groups should be two years old by the time they enter school in September.The Orange Room meets Monday, Wednesday and Fridays from 8:45 am to 12:00 noon. The Purple Room will be same except it meets 5 days a week. Students will have an opportunity to extend their day for lunch and enrichment at an additional cost.
While some children enter our school in the Blue Room, this is the class for our Threes. In this class, children use their burgeoning skill sets toward language development, connecting ideas, and beginning peer collaboration, while we nurture their growing awareness of the wider world and work on building their confidence as learners and unique individuals.
The Blue Room meets five days per week, Monday through Thursday, from 8:45am to 12:30pm, Friday is a noon dismissal. Children in the Blue Room can stay four afternoons each week for our Extended Day Enrichment program, and from 12:00-1:00 pm for Super Soccer Stars on Friday. Extended Day serves as a gradual link to a full day of school, which begins in the Pre-K year.
The Red Room
This is Habonim’s Pre-Kindergarten class. Children move from the Purple and Blue Rooms to the Red Room, where as four and five year olds, they prepare for the transition to a more academic setting, with increased focus on the basic concepts of language, literacy, math and science, while still having many opportunities to explore, play, and develop their ever-growing independence.
Children in this room takes advantage of many features of the surrounding neighborhood, going on walks with their teachers and other Nursery School staff members to the nearby Fire Station, the Post Office, museums, and Central Park; all of which provide rich linkage to classroom curriculum.
The Red Room meets five days per week: Monday to Thursday from 8:45am to 2:15pm, and Friday from 8:45am to 12:00pm, when the school day ends earlier for Shabbat.
