What JuDA is all about

Children absorb from the world around them, forming trillions of brain connections by interacting with their environment. JUDA is about providing the children with enriched opportunities for learning using all of their senses. At JUDA, the children will develop a love for our Jewish heritage and the Hebrew language by immersing themselves in it through art, music, literature, dance and taste. 

ART & SENSORY STUDIO

Enter the JUDA studio, a setting where children are invited to represent their developing ideas, feelings and imaginations through creative art. Using an array of materials of various shapes, colors, textures and sizes, the children experiment with gentle guidance and Judaic themes, focusing on the rich process of their creative experience.

MUSIC & MOVEMENT  

Music is the universal language of the world and moving our large muscles helps our minds and bodies work together, allowing new learning to take place. At JUDA the children discover the Hebrew language together, through traditional dances and melodies, rhythm and motion, using their music for self expression and to connect with others. 

Literature & Dramatic arts

As humans, we look to connect with others by sharing our stories. At JUDA, Hebrew literature comes to life as the children reenact the experiences of the characters they encounter and identify with their feelings, developing empathy. The children learn to communicate their stories through drama while simultaneously acquiring a new spoken language. 

traditional tastes 

In the JUDA kitchen, children are busy at work creating the traditional delicacies of our heritage such as latkes, hummus and apple strudel while incorporating all the senses of sight, smell, sound, touch and of course taste! The children practice skills such as following directions and fine motor technique, developing confidence to navigate practical life.
