About Keshet Child Development Center

Keshet Child Development Center is a Jewish preschool that for over 30 years has been offering a wonderful program to children from age 2 through age 5. Keshet was voted “The Best Preschool in the Washington, DC Area” in the 2010 Nickelodeon Parent’s Choice Awards.

The name of our preschool, pronounced ke-shet, is Hebrew for “rainbow.” The rainbow, the symbol of G-d's covenant with Noah and with all future generations, also symbolizes our school's commitment to offer children a learning environment that nurtures a love for, and an understanding of our Jewish heritage, traditions, and values.

We believe in the integration of learning and play, as children learn best by doing. We strive for a balance between teacher- directed and child-initiated activities, providing the foundation of a developmentally appropriate early childhood program. Given opportunities to explore the world around them, young children become active, involved learners. School becomes a place where they can be successful and discover that learning is fun.

All our activities are organized to meet the needs of the whole child and make the process of learning a positive and enjoyable experience. Pre-reading skills are an important part of our program. They include all forms of large and small motor coordination, language arts, creative movement, music, rhythm, oral language, listening skills, dramatic play, and perceptual awareness.

Judaism and its customs and traditions are woven into our broad educational program. At Keshet, we observe Jewish customs, holidays, and ceremonies.
