Located in Port Washington, the Florence Brownstein Preschool works tirelessly to foster the healthy development of…More children through art, language and the promotion of Jewish identity. Florence Brownstein's nurturing staff of certified early childhood educators have created a curriculum designed to facilitate the growth of the school's students through music, stories and creative play. Children will engage in a variety of academic- and lifestyle-based activities, including baking, yoga and science projects, all aimed at reinforcing core math and reading skills in preparation for their kindergarten years. In addition, the school works to incorporate elements of the Jewish faith into its robust curriculum, including informal integration of the Hebrew language into daily activities and the reinforcement of Jewish values.
All of this is housed in a state-of-the-art facility, complete with brightly lit, welcoming indoor classrooms, play areas and outdoor playgrounds. Each classroom includes a full kitchenette, mini-bathrooms, fully-equipped security system and full-time instructor supervision, with up to three teachers in a classroom at any one time.
In 2011, Florence Brownstein will also add two brand-new facilities to its already outstanding offerings. Florence's Mini-Israel is functioning, child-size replication of Israeli life right inside the school's indoor gym, complete with Jewish signage and music. In this dual play/education space, students will develop their gross motor skills as they explore the facility's many activities, including shops, an excavation site, a miniature climbing wall and a live feed to the Western Wall in Jersusalem.
Florence's one-third acre Discovery Island is an outdoor classroom that will reproduce the nautical flavor of Port Washington while enabling children to learn and explore in a fun, invigorating environment. On Discovery Island, children will be able to explore a lighthouse and sunken ship and partake in numerous activities in the site's yoga/storytime stadium, herbal gardens and rock climbing area.
