BERNICE JACOBSON DAY SCHOOL & CAMP
Day School Ages: 3-24 months
Preschool Ages: 2-3 years
The needs of your child and family are our primary focus. The Bernice Jacobson Day School & Camp located at our Old Westbury campus enriches the lives of children through play and exploration in a safe, nurturing environment. Interweaving Jewish values into daily lesson plans so each child’s foundation is built on kindness, respect, and pride, allows our children to develop a sense of self at the earliest of ages.
Based on the principles found in Reggio Emilia, a municipality in Italy, our philosophy is rooted in the commitment to promote the development of children’s abilities, including social, emotional, and cognitive growth. At Bernice Jacobson Day School & Camp, learning is based on emergent curriculum, schedules are flexible and daily activities are often adjusted to meet children’s interests. Our highly trained staff respects individual differences in children’s abilities, interests, and preferences, as well as variations among cultures and backgrounds. Our preschool program is aligned with NYS Early Learning Standards and the Common Core curriculum and is licensed by New York State Office of Children and Family Services.
