Our Vision at The May Family Nursery School
Early childhood is an important time of discovery and connection for children and their parents. At Central Synagogue, a thriving reform congregation serving 2,300 families and the larger community in midtown Manhattan, we provide children with rich learning and growth experiences that establish them as lifelong learners and celebratory experiences that connect them to the joys of Judaism through an exploration of values, traditions, and ritual. The Early Childhood Department at Central Synagogue, consisting of the May Family Nursery School, Central Tots, a program for children and families under the age of two, and Camp Central, collaborates closely with Central’s Youth and Family Engagement Department.
The role of the Assistant Early Childhood Director is to support and help carry out the Central Synagogue Early Childhood Department’s education, programming, and family engagement objectives in the May Family Nursery School, Central Tots, and Camp Central programs, all of which provide a dynamic and enriching range of educational and Jewish engagement opportunities for children from birth to age five and their families.
