Akiva Junior Kindergarten Program

Our Akiva Junior Kindergarten Program follows a government mandated curriculum taught through the Akiva educational lens.  Students learn three languages, English, French and Hebrew.  Jewish life programming brings the beauty of Judaism into the classroom through prayer, music, song, holiday celebrations and art.  Our 4- year-old students also stay active in our Akiva gym program and visit our Sam & Naomi Fayer Innovation Lab to build robots, do programming and experiment with hands-on projects.

The Junior Kindergarten Room

Our new Junior Kindergarten room has been created for the learning needs of our 4 year old students.  This spacious new room incorporates natural materials such as wood and plant greenery to create a peaceful and engaging room in which our students can thrive and learn every day.
