HAMAKOM's early childhood program engages children 18 months through kindergarten, giving them the opportunity to grow, learn and play at school while making friends. In our early childhood program, your child will enjoy a nurturing environment where parents are always welcome. Our program is designed to promote Jewish values, self expression, self awareness, creativity, sharing and cooperation, verbalization of feelings, conceptual development, readiness for learning, problem solving, independence, physical and social development, cultural awareness and a love of Judaism that will last a lifetime. Our early childhood education program is a developmental play-based program with an eye on kindergarten readiness. We provide developmentally age-appropriate curriculum, along with skills and goals to help guide the children through each of our age levels and prepare them to transition to the next age level.


Intermediate and Pre-K

In addition to a curriculum stressing Jewish history, holiday, and values. In our Intermediate and Pre-K age levels we use the award-winning Early Literacy Curriculum, Learning Without Tears (Get Set For School). The Get Set For School Readiness and Writing program is a developmentally-based curriculum that acknowledges what we as educators know and research supports - that learning needs to be joyful, child-friendly and active. We will build upon the skills that your children need as they prepare for kindergarten. The Intermediate’s goals of Handwriting Without Tears is to teach your children important pre-writing and letter recognition skills. In this age level we focus on playful learning to develop coloring, drawing, counting, building and handwriting readiness skills. Moving on to Pre-K, the goals of Kick Start Kindergarten are to encourage the children to write all the letters in the alphabet correctly, and in an order that is developmentally appropriate for their fine motor skills. California has rigorous content standards beginning in kindergarten and our early childhood program will help guide and prepare the children through this transition.



Our 4-year-old classroom will expose students to kindergarten standards and curriculum, but at an individualized pace. Children have the opportunity to develop and grow at their own academic level… it’s a very hands-on experience! At the end of the year, students may either enter a traditional kindergarten program or advance to first grade. We focus and excel in preparing our students in reading readiness, math, science, language arts, and social studies as well as continuing our Jewish education program.
