Get Ready for PALS!
Drawing & Painting, Movement, Story Time, Singing, Cooking, Gardening, Play, Music, and Hands-on Math and Science, Shabbat & Holidays – your child will love coming to school.
Our preschool curriculum allows each child to explore and grow within a caring community of other children, teachers, and parents. Children learn by playing and doing.
Positive Jewish identity is nurtured through celebration. With joy, we celebrate Shabbat and holidays, explore ideas about God, nature, love, and connection to our traditions in a loving, joyful way.
Our Shabbat Magic celebrations and holiday programs are enhanced by the active involvement of our Rabbis and Jewish Educators!

The Play And Learn School is in the application process to be fully licensed, as required by law, through the Massachusetts Office of Early Education and Care and, once granted a provisional licence, will be in full compliance with the regulations and requirements of this governing agency. Through its regulation, EEC establishes the basis for safe and appropriate programs for young children. Beyond the EEC regulations, are standards described by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Nationally recognized as setting more specific and optimal conditions for children in the early childhood standards, NAEYC standards are the foundation for our program goals.
