The objective of a good nursery program is to create a warm, healthy and happy environment where small children can grow and develop emotionally and cognitively as well as physically.

At B. Y. Sarah Dabah, we strive to do this in a most professional and caring manner. Additionally, we endeavor to impart a love and flair for the beauty of our religion and culture, as well as to nurture and develop faith and trust in G‑d. We hope to inculcate a love for Eretz Yisrael, all things Jewish and an involvement in the performance of the Mitzvot. B. Y. Sarah Dabah has a diverse population. The children’s exposure to the multi-cultural setting at this young age sets the stage for on-going tolerance and Ahavat Yisroel.

In early childhood, the seeds of learning, Jewish identity, curiosity and caring are planted. Our program, B. Y. Sarah Dabah, spans a period of intense personal, social and academic growth. Young children develop at different paces. Our teachers are sensitive to the wide range of abilities and developmental levels within this age group. They offer creative activities that fit into the broad developmental continuum represented by the students.

Each classroom has teachers who guide the children and promote active learning, problem-solving, discovery of friendship and exploration of their new, expanded learning world. The classroom is a community in which Jewish values are modeled and reinforced, and Hebrew language is introduced through songs, games, and simple conversation. The curriculum combines structured and unstructured activities that encourage young children's most important work - creative play. Every day is filled with art, music, stories, language, Jewish living, and hands-on exploration.

B. Y. Sarah Dabah is supervised by the New York City Department of Education / Universal Pre-Kindergarten program, the NYC Dept of Health, and Early Learning. The classrooms are all well-outfitted with state-of-the-art preschool furnishings, and we have our own outdoor playground
