One of the great things about enrolling your children at CJP is their access to incredible weekly specials! From library to science, music to Judaica, and gym to gross motor, our special programs contribute to developing the whole child by getting them actively engaged, moving, singing, reading, and laughing! Our specialists plan dynamic, age-appropriate lessons each week for all students to enjoy. Below, you will find a comprehensive description of these vibrant weekly specials.
Story time @ the Center for Jewish Education
CJP students visit the children’s room of the Center for Jewish Education twice a month.The librar staff is proud and delighted to share their love of language and children's literature with our students!
We provide gross motor for our Ones and Twos, and physical education for our Threes, Fours, and TK classes. Goals include promoting teamwork, a joy of movement and exercise, increasing strength, flexibility and coordination, and improving self-esteem confidence, and motor control.
A music specialist teaches our weekly music class. Classes are designed to develop a sense of rhythm, enhance language development, and encourage enjoyment of singing and interpretive movement. Our staff leads students in acting out songs, and they use fingerplays to enhance Judaic and secular themes.
Our science is based off the Growth Through Gardening program, and encourages children to ask questions, understand cause and effect, use all fo their senses, and learn about the world around them through nature.
