Shirlee Green Preschool


All classes have a fun curriculum based on the Constructivist philosophy using Project Construct as its framework. We encourage experiential learning containing the principles of Developmentally Appropriate Practice as developed by the National Association for the Education for Young Children (NAEYC).

Parparim (Butterflies)

This is a transitional room from K'Tanim to M'Tukim. Criteria for joining the M’Tukim class are walking independently, eating by hand, and some form of communication.
