Bet Torah Nursery School announced an expanded and enhanced parenting program which will include new classes beginning this fall for young families. Programs are open to the community and do not require synagogue membership.
Bet Torah Nursery School is excited to welcome back Adrian Kalikow, certified Parent Coach this fall as we expand and enhance our parenting program. Adrian has been involved in
the education of young children and parents for over 30 years.
Adrian will be facilitating Baby Talk for parents and for infants born in 2015 on Thursday mornings beginning October 1 for an 8 week session. Adrian has planned each weekly session to address parent concerns, to share ideas and to strengthen bonds with your babies. There is a $150.00 fee for 8 sessions.
A second new program, Bet Torah’s Preschool Parent Connection, will meet with Adrian monthly from September through June. This adults-only group will gather on Wednesday September 30 and then continue to meet the fourth Wednesday of every month. This parents-only group will meet for an hour in Bet Torah’s newly designed warm and welcoming library lobby space to address the issues central to the parenting of young children. Topics will range from sleep issues to mealtime, discipline to taking time for yourself and your marriage. There is a $200.00 fee for 10 sessions.
Hands On Holidays, a monthly program of 6 sessions through the year, will highlight Jewish family holidays and share ideas to enhance family home celebrations. Crafts, recipes, music and movement, children’s literacy and more will fill these morning sessions with fun for parents and children. Rabbi Lori Koffman, Director of Community Engagement and Learning, will join Mindy Citera, Bet Torah Nursery School Director, in these specially designed family programs. A $25 materials fee will collected for all recipe ingredients and take home supplies.
