A Warm and Welcoming Learning Environment
Our Nadel Center for Early Childhood Education (NCECE) is an APPLE accredited school and the first stop on your child’s academic journey. We provide a warm and welcoming learning environment for children between the ages of 2 months and five years old. During their time here, our students acquire a love of learning and a strong sense of Jewish identity while developing their cognitive, motor, social-emotional and self-help skills.
I grew up in Boca and attended Hebrew School at CBI as a child. When it came time to pick a preschool, I reached out to Rebeca and scheduled a tour. Rebeca was so warm and friendly and made me feel so comfortable when it came time to drop off our first child at school, and we knew she was in good hands. We’ve been so impressed with all they’ve learned and have loved each and every one of their teachers. It’s such a great place!

We offer yoga, science, music, sensory, PE, storytime, personal safety and mindfulness awareness classes taught by specialists. Our students have fun and explore our five outdoor play areas, Environmental Awareness Garden, Howard Computer Lab equipped with state-of-the-art computers and the Feldman’s Children’s Library staffed by our award-winning librarian. Daily schedules include a balance of activities and learning experiences that are designed to create friendships and nurture the development of the whole child.

We offer a nurturing, fun environment for your child’s first school experience. Teachers with a special understanding of this age group facilitate cooperation and turn taking. They encourage the development of self-help, social-emotional, motor and cognitive skills as well as language development through hands-on, exploratory experiences. This, in turn, leads to increased self-confidence. Most importantly, our teachers focus on creating a warm and trusting environment which helps each child grow at his or her own pace.

For many children, this is their first school experience. Our first priority is to provide a warm and trusting environment as they ease into independence. Teachers with a special understanding of this age group help each child grow at his or her own pace.

Your child will have fun and make friends while building self-confidence and a strong educational foundation.

Pre-K is designed to provide our children with the optimal balance of structure, independence and nurturing as they build their social-emotional, fine and gross motor, and cognitive skills. Literacy and math concepts such as letter sounds, writing, rhyming, classifying, graphing, addition and subtraction are woven into their daily activities. They express themselves in journals, enjoy group activities and share ideas. Our teachers understand that our children are figuring out how to navigate their increasingly sophisticated social world and foster the concept empathy for their peers. By the end of the year, our Pre-K students are ready and eager for Kindergarten!
