But more than anything else, we feel our children are loved and nurtured by the caring staff. Each year, all of our children have been surrounded by loving, warm, dedicated teachers. I never feel worried about leaving them for the day knowing the kind and special caregivers at Yal-Day-New provide such a safe, warm atmosphere for their growth and development.”  – Yael S.

About the School

quote   Yal-Day-New was the perfect preschool for our twin daughters. As our daughters have started Kindergarten, we have seen exactly how well the reading, numbers, and Jewish instruction they received at Yal-Day-New prepared them for their new challenges.” – Michael and Nomi B.

About Lindsay Harvey – Director

quoteWe appreciate all that Lindsay does at Yal-Day-New. She works so hard to run the most comfortable, fun, loving daycare around. I’m so glad our son is warming to everyone, and that Lindsay spends time with him during her very busy days. We appreciate every craft, card and thoughtful element of being part of the Yal-Day-New family.” – Eran & Karen S.

Why Jewish Early Education is Important to my Family

quoteSending my daughter to a Jewish Early Childhood Education program is important because it reinforces the values throughout the day that I am teaching her at home. As we go into each Jewish holiday she has already learned about it and celebrating it at home isn’t a surprise. She gets to hear Hebrew throughout the day which reinforces language that she hears at home. It’s important to me because Judaism is important to me.” – Sarah F.
