Welcome to the Kasselman School, and early childhood program accredited by The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), and awarded the Gold Seal of Excellence Award from Florida Department of Children and Families for more then the past decade. We invite infants from 6 weeks to children 5 years of age to come learn and grow with us. We offer an assortment of educational and enriching opportunities to meet our families’ differing needs, including full-time and part-time days for babies thru VPK. In addition, we offer extended hours for the convenience of working parents.
 
Our school is a warm, loving environment that prides itself on the commitment to family. Our very active Parents Association plays an important role in the school’s educational, social and fundraising activities throughout the year, and its efforts directly benefit the children.
 

Our Philosophy

We base our philosophy and teaching approach on addressing the growth and needs of each child. With your involvement, we lovingly guide your child according to his or her unique development and characteristics. We offer a Jewish environment, reflecting the precious values of our heritage, an important aspect of your child’s growth and total development.
 

Curriculum Goals

The current philosophy in the field of early childhood education emphasizes active learning in an enriched classroom environment through a variety of developmentally appropriate activities. We want children to become independent, self-confident, curious learners who work well with others. We do this by creating purposeful and productive play experiences that help children grow in all areas.
 
Our weekly Shabbat get-together is an activity which the children eagerly look forward to and includes candle lighting, songs, blessings over the challah and grape juice, and a special Shabbat performance each week by a different class. Parents, grandparents and friends are always welcome to join us via ZOOM for this weekly celebration.
 

Our Beautiful Facility

Temple Sinai’s beautiful campus is centrally located in the Hollywood Hills neighborhood in south Broward County.  Thanks to a generous gift from Harriet Kasselman and the family of Kenneth Kasselman (obm), we have recently completed a major renovation of our entire campus.  All of our classrooms have new furnishings and state-of-the-art teaching tools.  Our children play in three age-appropriate, well-shaded, fenced-in areas that are fully equipped with contemporary playground equipment.
 

Safety & Security

Your child’s safety is paramount to us. We have several levels of security measures in place designed to ensure a secure facility. 
 
During this time of COVID-19, we practice the strictest of protocols based on the recommendations of the CDC and Broward Health Department.  Click here for our most updated COVID-19 Policies and Protocols.
 

An Exceptional Learning Environment

Our school boasts an outstanding faculty. As a DCF accredited agency, all staff are registered with the State of Florida and undergo a rigorous background screening. Many of our staff members hold advanced degrees in early childhood education and all take classes annually to update their skills.
 
Each classroom has a very low child-to-teacher ratio. Additionally, the total number of children in each classroom is kept to a minimum, giving your child more room in which to learn and play and maximizing the personal attention he or she requires.

 

Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten Program (VPK)

In 2002, the State of Florida created funding to subsidize pre-kindergarten education for every child who turns 4 by September 1st.  We are a VPK provider, and offer half day VPK as well as a full day wrap-around option.  Click here to register and receive your VPK Certificate of Eligibility.
 
Please call the Kasselman School for more information or to make an appointment for a virtual tour of our Early Childhood Learning Center.  We look forward to meeting with you!
