At the Beverly Levy Early Learning Center, children enrolled in the kindergarten program will now enjoy free and unlimited access to age-appropriate enrichment classes offered at the JCC during the week. The wide-range of classes offered throughout the year will include science, computer programming, swimming, rock-wall climbing, pottery, woodworking, tennis, basketball, dance, and more. These enrichment classes will create an added value to the children’s experience at a program which is already considered excellent by area families.
The center, which welcomes children and families of all backgrounds, boasts a low student/teacher ratio and a culturally diverse staff as well as students. Laura Prestash, the head teacher of the kindergarten program, has been honored as “Teacher of the Year” by the Connecticut Association for the Education of Young Children. Prestash holds both a master’s and bachelor’s degree in early childhood education.
Beverly Levy’s integrated curriculum includes mathematics, literacy, science and creative arts – all in an environment that fosters an individualized approach to learning. “My son is eligible to start kindergarten at Beecher this year, and even though he is very bright and social, I felt he wasn’t ready to thrive at a public school kindergarten yet. So my husband and I decided to give him the gift of time at this terrific program” says Emily, a Beverly Levy parent.
