Torah Day School of Ottawa

Pre-K (3-4 year olds)


The Torah Day School Pre-Kindergarten (Pre-K) program instills a love of Yiddishkeit (Judaisim) through hands on, experiential learning. We educate children in a creative, supportive and warm Jewish environment, where Judaism is not just a subject, but a way of life.

As children progress from the pre-k program into the main kindergarten program, they learn about Shabbos, Jewish holidays, the Torah, doing mitzvos and davening.  In addition to learning to read and write in English, the children learn the Aleph-Beis and begin their French language education. The general studies program introduces basic math skills and units on the weather, the world around them, science and the animal kingdom. Children in Torah Day’s pre-k love school and love being Jewish!
