The Alfred G. Rayner Learning Center provides a healthy functional physical environment, a structured, progressive, developmentally appropriate curriculum and skilled, knowledgeable teachers.
From infancy to preschool your child will engage in exciting learning activities specifically designed to meet their needs and help them develop in all areas.
Pre-K children play cooperatively in our ExploreYard, an outdoor, hands-on classroom for experiential education. The ExploreYard includes a Sound Wall for musical exploration, a Patio Playhouse, Sand tables, Nature Exploration, a Stage for Dramatic Play, a Toy car track, a Bucket scale for STEM exploration, and more!
The Rayner Center emphasizes Judaism, its customs and culture, including holidays like Sukkot, a harvest festival. Here some of our children are playing in a sukkah, the three-side structure used during the holiday.
Our older children attend Shabbat services each week.
Mousercise is a weekly floor-based gymnastics program that allows children to develop their motor skills and balance.
Children enjoy the slide on our playground. Our playgrounds are designed for young toddlers, older toddlers and pre-schoolers, with age-appropriate playing and climbing equipment in each. All three areas are covered to allow us to enjoy outdoor play year-round.
