Pomegranate Preschool for the Arts at Temple Emek Shalom offers three to five-year-old children an arts immersion curriculum. Music, art, drama and creative writing (through story dictation) are offered throughout the week. We welcome children of diverse faiths, cultures and family structures. Our school celebrates the Jewish Holidays and the weekly ritual Shabbat.
Pomegranate is in session Mondays through Fridays from 9:00 am to 12:45 pm. Children may attend three, four, or five days each week. The small size of our program, enables us to recognize and respect the individual temperaments, gifts and challenges of each child. Our teacher/student ratio is one to six. Ten to twelve students and two teachers are present from Mondays through Thursdays. On Fridays, all students are encouraged to attend, and three to four teachers are present.
The Pomegranate community joins together four times during the school year for potlucks, dramatic performances and a graduation ceremony. Class field trips include excursions to: Eagle Mill Farm, Ashland Fire Station, Ashland Equestrian Center, the Grower’s Market, and the ice skating rink.
If you are interested in enrolling your child in the Pomegranate program, please call (541) 488-2909 and ask to speak with Robin Heald, Preschool Director.
