Susan Sims Bodenstein Preschool of Mishkon Tephilo

Our Early Childhood Program serves children from 18 months to five years and offers a year-round program, a high-quality curriculum, yoga and mindfulness classes, and half-day and full-day options.

We provide a warm, nurturing environment influenced by Jewish traditions where children can develop to their fullest potential.

We treat children as unique individuals and support, guide, and stimulate their social, emotional, spiritual, cognitive, creative, and physical growth.

The Open Temple Support Group: Parents with 8-12 year olds

What happened to my kid?
Barbara Olinger is here for you.
As children navigate these transitional ages, parents often feel approaches that have worked in the past no longer seem effective. In this group, we explore how to honor the growing need for autonomy with an existing need for intimacy/dependence.
