Yeshiva College Playschool
Yeshiva College Playschool aims to develop the “whole child” by nurturing each child’s social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual and physical needs within a warm, loving, secure and stimulating environment.
The Playschool offers an age-appropriate, integrated General Studies and Kodesh programme. The school’s objective is to instil a love of Judaism and Yiddishkeit, creating a platform for a lifetime of Torah learning, together with the development of skills and knowledge of the world around us.
An integration of General Studies and Kodesh underlies the curriculum.

Kodesh: Davening; Parsha; “Mitzva of the Week”; stories; songs; Chaggim; Shabbat; Chesed programme.
Exciting and stimulating extra-curricular activities include: Music and Movement; Playball; library; drumming; a variety of edutainment such as animals and puppet shows.
A Language Enrichment programme, presented by a speech therapist, focuses on the children’s auditory and language skills and is done once a week with each class.
Yeshiva College Playschool is able to accommodate three classes. The children turn three years old in the year that they spend at the Playschool. A large complement of teachers, who attend continuous professional development courses on a variety of topics pertaining to Early Childhood Development, and assistants teach and nurture our little learners.
Outdoors, an exciting playground fuels our children’s energy whilst, indoors, a variety of educational games and resources develop our little learners’ skills. Resources are continually upgraded to further enrich the children’s learning experience.
