Rosemary & Mel Hoppenheim Early Learning Center
The Rosemary and Mel Hoppenheim Early Learning Center is home to the Akiva Junior Kindergarten (4-year-old program) and Kindergarten (5-year-old program). This beautiful, newly renovated center has been designed specifically for our youngest students’ needs and program objectives. Creativity, inclusiveness and community surround our students as they explore, grow and develop their intellectual, social and academics skills.
A large part of early childhood education is based around social-emotional development; making friends, building self-confidence and independence, focusing on self-regulation and working together. Akiva School has always placed a strong emphasis on social-emotional learning in all grades, and our Kindergarten programs are the first stepping stones for preparing our new little students for future academic success through exploration, trusting relationships and fun!
