Of course children love to play! And unlike adults Hebrew Academy preschoolers do not draw a bold line between smart play and free play. If it is interesting and fun they are engaged and learn from the experience.
The Judy Steinberg Hebrew Academy preschool physical fitness and mental preparedness programs are designed to develop both cognitive and motor skills.
The activities we chose are designed to build both self confidence and awareness of the physical space that surrounds the child. There are boundries to explore both internal and external.
It is important to allow for free play as we do on our playground but the most enriching time is the time spent as a preschool group learning how to use as a tool the physcial body our children have been blessed with.
