Aleph Bet Jewish and Hebrew Education Programs in Victoria BC

our programs

The structure of the program is based on the notion that the best learning environment for children is one in which knowledge, skills and Jewish life experiences are acquired through a variety of activities using the child’s senses. Through Alef Bet and Montessori learning tools, music, textbooks, games, and visual aids, children will experience their heritage and develop their Hebrew literacy in an ongoing gradual process.

This program helps embrace Jewish identity by allowing children to explore and make a connection to their roots and traditions in an exciting manner.

more than just language

In their free time our 3-6 year old students engage in sensorial and practical life activities. Why?

Sensorial activities aid in refining and in the development of the child’s senses, help building her/his intellect and in understanding the world.

Practical life activities assist children to develop social skills and independence, to learn to respect and take care of themselves and their environment, and to develop gross and fine motor skills which involve body intellect and will. They also provide a link between home and school through adult-like activities they see at home that will ease the transition to school for the child.
