Affiliated Congregation: Congregation Shaare Emeth
Learning about nature extends throughout the Shirlee Green Preschool curriculum. SGP is the only Jewish preschool certified with an outdoor kitah (classroom) in the state of Missouri. The garden, along with other centers in the outdoor kitah, allow the children to experiment and take safe risks. Discovering the mysteries of bees and honey and maintaining a worm factory for composting teach the children knowledge about the world around them. Nature furnishes the children with paint brushes in the form of twigs, leaves and flowers. And what could be more magical than creating fairy gardens from organic materials found in nature to illicit special charms.
