The first years of life are the most critical for a child’s growth. Incredibly, how a child learns to interact with others...how a child learns to respond to his/her own emotions and the emotions of others…how a child acquires faith in his/her own abilities...these basic developments have resounding effects from the formative ages of infancy. If they capture these life-skills early, they will last a lifetime.
By giving preschoolers a safe, expansive environment to explore, you invest in their abilities to succeed as Jews in a constantly-changing world. You will change these children’s lives forever.
Because of you, not only will the preschoolers of Yahalom become independent, innovative thinkers, but other schools throughout Israel will utilize Montessori’s replicable curriculum. Not only will your donation impact our growing classroom, it will provide the blueprint so that other teachers and principals can apply our successes to their schools.
The result: your donation will change the face of Jewish education in Israel. Classroom by classroom, school by school.
A new wave of students will learn through love and inner drive, not through fear of discipline or external motivation. A new generation of thinkers will see the world as fertile grounds for exploration...all thanks to you.
Your gift helps build a foundation of emotional literacy, social skills and the development of executive function. These are the necessary ingredients that children need to overcome their unique obstacles throughout life.
By treating each child with respect, by allowing each child to follow his/her interests, by placing a premium on emotional responsiveness, Yahalom Montessori teachers prepare these preschoolers to grow into curious, social kindergartners, adolescents, teenagers and eventually adults.
But they can’t do it without your help.
Please give, and show the students of Yahalom that you believe in them. Show them that you’re there for them as they take their first steps in this brave, new world. Please give Israel’s preschoolers the tools they’ll take with them for life.
Where will your money go?
