Midtown’s groundbreaking Renamin Manhattan pre-school offers a unique Jewish education experience for children 18 months to six-years-old in a supportive, non-threatening environment.
Launched in Israel and now operating in both Manhattan and in Riverdale, the school offers a 45-year track record in quality commitment to academics for early learners.
The interdisciplinary program utilizes arts and crafts, music, language development — listening, speaking, reading, and writing – among other advanced teaching and nurturing techniques with proven benefits.
Classes are organized according to age and designed to encourage them to participate in creative activities, and activities that promote language and speech.
The primary focus with the youngest children is to enable them to deal with separation and foster their socialization and initiation into nursery school.
As they become more mature, they are aided in developing social skills and in acquiring language and speech skills in conjunction with early literacy.
Children in the oldest classes are enabled to easily transition into and thrive in the kindergarten of their choice. The curriculum also provides students with the necessary skills to do well on the Education Records Bureau test for entry into private schools.
The beautiful four-classroom facility offers a refrigerator, a microwave, and each classroom has its own access to the outdoor yard. This allows children to move freely in class and outside under constant teacher supervision. The teacher is with the class for the full day; at no time are the children left alone without teacher or other adult supervision.
“Renamin offers a superior developmental experience and Jewish education for children that few schools in the city can compete with,” says renowned New York developer Elie Hirschfeld whose property provides the unique location for the school. He has also been a long supporter.
“Preschools are essential for maturity and growth in children and this institution has proven track record of delivering on that promise,” Hirschfeld continued. “The fact that it has been cited by Mayor Bill de Blasio as a target for inclusion in his innovative Pre-K program is a clear sign of the quality its programs offer any child.”
