Preschool at the Pauline Mash School for Early Childhood Education.

We lay the foundations for a lifetime of Jewish learning and practice by encouraging students to explore Jewish tradition, make Judaism their own, and become the best versions of themselves.

Who we are.

We are an energetic learning community of nurturing teachers, remarkable clergy, and supportive parents working together to cultivate the characters and inspire the minds of each student as they grow into curious, competent, and responsible human beings who care about their Judaism.

What we believe.

We empower young children to become effective, enthusiastic, and independent learners by partnering with their families to create a warm, caring, and supportive community where everyone is respected and valued.

What we do.

Jewish values and celebration form the foundation of our curriculum, which integrates Torah wisdom into everyday life through music, movement, cooking, literature, math, science, gardening, and art. Our children celebrate Shabbat every week and regularly interact with the synagogue, our clergy, daily and holiday rituals, and blessings.

Summer Program.

We offer a 9-week Summer Program for children ages 2 to 5 years old. Join us for a fun filled summer experience that includes sports, water play, cooking, art, music, nature and much more! Your children will enjoy our brand new Generations Park, which includes a new playground, water play area, bike path, pavilion for outdoor activities and more. Besides the wonderful Beth El teachers that work during the summer, we have the luxury of many air conditioned spaces in the preschool.
