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.

We celebrated Purim by making a small parade! Purim is a Jewish holiday of dress-up and noise-making. With shakers in hand, crowns and ‘Haman’ hats on our heads, we paraded through the synagogue and stopped by a carnival game to take a photo.

We also had a guest artist on Friday, Joanie Kellerhand, who shared with us her passion for paper-making!
