Since children are at many different developmental levels socially, cognitively and emotionally, a Junior Kindergarten program that is rich in exploration, creativity, learning and play allows this group of children to grow and thrive.  

In the Junior Kindergarten class, the children form deep friendships and establish their own community guided by two teachers who understand all the nuances of this age.  Learning is done in the creation of projects, stories, poetry, science experiments and exploring cultures in our Reggio-inspired program. The children spend much of their day discovering properties of materials and manipulating materials.  They also have Creative Fitness and Music classes weekly.  

Your child will soar in the Hummingbirds!  Schedule a visit today for your family by calling 408-358-1751 x115 or email Robin at robin@shirhadash.org.

“Our daughter thrived under  Miss Martina and Miss Nonny’s care – they are warm, funny and highly professional. The Reggio approach is just amazing, encourages curiosity, creativity and independence in a truly unique way.”
