Toddlers becoming artists.

Weekday Toddler Program 2016-2017

For ages 16 - 34 months ~ Caregiver attendance required

September 7 – June 7

Mondays & Wednesdays 9:30-11:30am


Shearith Israel’s popular Toddler Program is held twice a week for children aged 16-34 months with an adult caregiver. The program focuses on learning colors and shapes, creating arts and crafts, singing songs, exploring Jewish holidays, music and more.  There is an opportunity for the caregivers to support the children’s activities, and there are times when the teacher encourages them to sit on the side and observe while the children manage on their own.


We have a one day option but we strongly recommend two days which gives more continuity to the program; it allows the child to be more aware of themes that continue for several sessions and also to see familiar faces on a regular basis. 


We offer a 20% sibling discount when two or more siblings participate at the same time. We warmly welcome both synagogue members and non-members to register.

Shearith Israel’s “Omer Board” dates back to the Mill Street Synagogue of 1730, and may indeed go back to the early years of the Congregation’s history.
