A PLACE WHERE YOUR CHILDREN THRIVE
Our goal at PTS Preschool is to provide families with a warm, nurturing, and loving preschool experience.
Since our Preschool opened its doors in 1982, our program has earned a reputation for excellence, and we have seen our preschool grow from one classroom to the full and vibrant 12 classes it is today. Our beautiful Rabbi Gerald and Helen Raiskin Torah Center facility provides an enhanced, developmentally appropriate environment where children are encouraged to explore and develop their curiosity through play and challenging experiences. Our classes are taught by educated teachers who far exceed the minimum licensing requirements and who are all trained in pediatric First Aid and CPR. Our teachers continue to participate in ongoing professional development and work in teams to provide quality experiences for children
The most effective early childhood programs encourage parent participation and involvement in their children’s program. Communicating with parents through informal daily interactions and scheduled conferences provide greater opportunity for meaningful parent/child interactions and conversations involving parents in the happenings in their child(ren)’s day.
Director of Early Childhood Education, Allison Steckley, is committed to teaching values, morals, customs, and traditions with a liberal Jewish approach. While we nurture a Jewish identity, we are open to students of all faiths. Our Preschool is fortunate to be a part of the Peninsula Temple Sholom community, and with this comes the nurturing guidance and support of our Clergy, Senior Staff Team and the Peninsula Temple Sholom Board of Trustees.
We are happy to offer our community part-day and full day options plus a special toddler program and

Allison, the preschool director, is a dream. You can't imagine a more welcoming, warm, understanding and overall awesome leader. Her compassion runs deep; from knowing each and every preschooler and each of their personal strengths, to being so very relatable on a parent-level as well. And Kim, Allison's right hand lady, is amazing. She's incredibly warm, helpful, and a pleasure to chat with.
