At Ahava, we know each family’s needs are unique and our goal is to offer many programming options to suit your needs.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Early Care is not currently being offered in order to minimize children’s contact with multiple sets of caregivers throughout the day. In the past, Early Care has been offered beginning at 7:30 a.m. Children are served a nutritious, Kosher breakfast to start their day as their teachers greet them warmly to their “home away from home.”
Our core program runs from approximately 8:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m., with staggered drop-off times for each classroom. During this time, your child will have the full Ahava experience, including indoor and outdoor exploration, morning meeting and special activities, such as music and challah baking. All children will receive a healthy, kosher lunch.
Children who attend our Full Day Program until 3:00 p.m. will transition to our serene Resting Room after lunch for a peaceful rest period, followed by additional outdoor exploration (weather permitting) or indoor playtime for early-risers and non-nappers.
For families who choose all-day care for their children, we are open until 6:00 p.m. Children will be offered a nutritious, kosher snack towards the beginning of their afternoon, in addition to indoor and outdoor exploration and playtime. We encourage Independent and Small Group Learning Activities in the late afternoon, as children sometimes can become overwhelmed in larger play groups at this time of day.
