Much thought and intentionality went into creating our school facilities.
Our beautiful 13,500 square foot facility is fully powered by solar energy and houses a preschool, commercial kosher kitchen, and synagogue. Our modern classrooms are specifically designed to meet the needs of young children. Our natural outdoor playscape provides children with a multi-sensory experience. We prioritize the use of recycled materials for play and art projects to promote a culture of sustainability.
The environment, also known as the "third teacher," plays a crucial role in the learning experience of children. Our natural playscape is composed of many micro-environments meant to engage children in learning and discovery. Aleph students play an active role in creating the outdoor space by helping to plant our vegetable garden and take responsibilty with keeping the yard clean. In addition, our dedicated Teva teacher offers children an even more submersive outdoor experience where they get the opportunity to interact with nature on a deeper level.
The developing human brain is a complex machine that requires high-quality fuel to power it. It is this knowledge that drives our chef, Lisa, to create a delicious & nutritious kosher meal program for the Aleph children. We provide morning and afternoon snacks in addition to lunch on a daily basis. More than just a time to eat, we use each meal time to foster discussion, practice table manners, cultivate good hygiene habits, and create community togetherness. Menu items include a range of foods, from quinoa and kale to homemade quesadillas. Each carefully planned and balanced meal has even the pickiest eaters expanding their palates!
Parent participation is an integral component of the Aleph Academy experience. Our “open door policy” encourages parents to visit and participate in special activities at our school. We even have a specific area for parents and staff to call their own: the cafe room. Here, parents have a quiet, comfortable sanctuary to read or work with the use of free WiFi. Our cafe is private, and only for use of the Aleph Academy family.
