“Coming from a home where only English is spoken, it was very exciting to hear my daughter begin labeling the world around her with her new Hebrew words. Her counselors provided a warm, nurturing environment for her to explore through an Israeli lens. I feel this experience really enhanced her developing Jewish identity. This program was everything we thought it would be and so much more!”Stacey, Apachi Ivrit Parent
Hebrew Immersion at Bernard Weinger JCC
It’s never too soon to begin learning another language.
Language immersion sparks Intellectual growth, enhances verbal and mathematical problem solving and stimulates creativity.
Beginning in 2018, Bernard Weinger JCC in Northbrook will offer a Hebrew immersion preschool program providing an opportunity to develop a high level of language proficiency and fluency.
Designed for 3- and 4-year olds, children in this 5-days per week learning experience will have the same solid foundation as in all of our preschool programs in a warm, nurturing, immersive Hebrew environment.
From the moment the day begins, every part of our curriculum will be conducted in Hebrew. A native-speaking master teacher, experienced in teaching language to young children, will work closely with each child as they explore music and art, embrace nature and the outdoors and grow into lifelong learners.
