About Our Community

Temple Beth Or Preschool is a Jewish learning environment that offers a strong, connected community. At TBOP, we help children and families with diverse needs, abilities, and beliefs thrive.

“We really do feel a part of the TBOP community…the preschoolers and their extended families are some of our and our daughter’s closest friends”
Looking for a high quality education and community where your child and family can grow together with others doing the same? Join us!

TBOP uses role modeling, active play, and discovery to teach our children about Jewish values, such as taking care of the Earth, giving tzedakah/charity, sharing with others, and being kind. In our halls and classrooms, you will hear a symphony of voices laughing, singing, playing, making plans, and engaging in sweet conversation.

We believe raising a child is a partnership with our school community involving parents, family and educators. We support our families and we take pride in the growth of their children. Parents also are welcome in the classroom at any time and play an active role in the life of the preschool. They participate in social and educational events as well as serve on the board of directors and volunteer committees.
