The Nursery

Congregation Beth Am is pleased to announce the opening of THE NURSERY, an infant and toddler care center for children ages 6 weeks to 2 years.
  • A low student to teacher ratio of 3:1
  • A safe indoor and outdoor environment, resembling the warmth of your home environment
  • The classrooms and playground will be outfitted with carefully-chosen equipment that promotes healthy development and encourages young explorers
  • A trusted, experienced and loving teaching staff, specializing in infant/toddler education, will hold, cuddle, and feed each child
  • A variety of age-appropriate activities, including story time, art, music, play exploration, and cooking
  • All types of music, including Judaic music will be played throughout each day -- music unlocks the creative spirit and strengthens the mind (The Mozart Effect)
  • Each infant will have his/her own crib, sheets, and two food storage areas (room temperature and refrigerated)
  • Toys will be sanitized daily, and changing tables will be sterilized after each diaper is changed
  • Daily written communication with parents regarding feedings, napping and diaper changes

​THE NURSERY Tuition Fees

Tuition is $1,930/month ($1,790 Beth Am members). Parents are expected to pay one month ahead of services rendered and are required to give one (1) month notice prior to withdrawal.


THE NURSERY is open 7:30 am – 5:30 pm daily. We will be closed on secular and Jewish holidays.

Class Placement in THE NURSERY

THE NURSERY will serve children 6 weeks – 2 years of age. Students will be assigned to a class based on chronological age and developmental stage, as recommended by the teachers.
