Registration for 2018-2019 begins April 15th, 2018
The MiYaD T.L.C. Preschool is a small, intimate Jewish preschool in Syosset whose mission is to provide a warm and nurturing environment where children can grow and develop emotionally, cognitively and physically. Based on the knowledge that the formative years of early childhood are vitally important, each child is viewed as a seed that we nurture with the utmost care; the seed’s every experience will shape and color the quality of its matured self. Our carefully crafted program is designed to provide children with the early foundation and framework necessary for the transition to elementary school and beyond. Children learn to develop the literacy, numeracy, reasoning, and decision making skills that form a foundation for school readiness. In addition, children learn socialization skills, build self- confi dence and develop the preliminary skills to explore and experience their world independently from their parents.
Jewish values and traditions drive the school curriculum, environment, and culture. Basic precepts such as respect for others, kindness, being a constructive member of a community, tzedakah, and practicing mitzvot are integrated into daily routines and interactive play. By doing so, we seek to create a stimulating and enriching educational environment that will ignite a spark in each child to lay claim to his or her Jewish heritage and commit him or her to a lifetime passion for learning. The MiYaD T.L.C. Preschool is dedicated to educating children from a broad range of Jewish backgrounds and observances. Our educational approach is guided by our recognition and respect for the unique qualities of each child. We recognize that each child has his or her unique needs, interests and passions. Our children are viewed as collaborators: they are competent, curious, inquisitive, unique, and creative. Each child who enters the school becomes a treasured member of our MiYaD T.L.C. Preschool family.

Each of the school’s certified early childhood educators is either herself a parent, comes from a large, close-knit family, or both. As a result, she brings to her job a unique and special blend of professional skills and personal experience. Our teachers are an unusually dedicated group of professionals whose commitment to each child under their tutelage does not stop at the classroom door.
The staff meets weekly to discuss curriculum, plan programs and share and exchange ideas in order to uphold the high standards of our program. Staff development is on-going to ensure that teachers can successfully adapt to the ever-changing needs of today’s families and to the findings of current research.
