Junior Kindergarten

The only full day Hebrew-immersive Junior Kindergarten in Philadelphia
Junior Kindergarten at Perelman is an incubator for learning and play. In a closely knit, caring setting specially designed for ages 4 and 5, children are immersed in a bilingual environment, at an age when they are most receptive, easing the acquisition of additional languages in the future. Judaism is the lens through which they develop social skills as well as appreciation and gratitude for our daily gifts.

Perelman’s constructivist approach combines learning through exploration and experimentation. Independence, resilience and confidence are established at each child’s individual pace, and critical thinking skills are cultivated through exposure to expressive, communicative and cognitive experiences.

Students enjoy access to our outstanding facilities, featuring a full-sized gymnasium, magnificent library and creative Landau Makerspace. Perelman’s faculty includes educational specialists in

  • Mathematics
  • Science and Computer Science
  • Fine Arts: Art/Music/Dance
  • Physical education

Our certified Junior Kindergarten teachers partners with the elementary school faculty to create integrated programs such as reading buddies and special holiday celebrations.
