Established in 1982 Yaldaynu is one of the oldest Jewish preschools on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. The schools mission is to provide a warm nurturing environment for children which encourages intellectual emotional physical and social growth. Parents are very involved in this process at Yaldaynu a child and family-centered neighborhood school where friendships between families continue long after children have moved on.
The choice of the Hebrew word ?? (our children) reflects the schools philosophy: to cultivate a Jewish identity and Jewish values in a relaxed developmentally appropriate way. Children are introduced to Shabbat and the Jewish holidays and Israel through art music stories and cooking. They also gain a sense of community and Jewish heritage when the school brings families together to celebrate the holidays.
Religious practice among Yaldaynu families mirrors the pluralism of the Upper West Sides Jewish community. Families of all levels of observance are welcome at Yaldaynu.
