Welcome to Beth Meyer Preschool! Since 1989, our center for early childhood education has nurtured children ages twelve months through pre-kindergarten by focusing on their social, physical, intellectual, creative, emotional and spiritual development. Beth Meyer Preschool is a flagship program of Beth Meyer Synagogue, but we welcome all learners — irrespective of religious identity and background — to join us as we explore together. You do not need to be a member of Beth Meyer Synagogue to enroll your child here. 

Beth Meyer Preschool holds a five star-rated license from the North Carolina Division of Child Development and Early Childhood Education in recognition of the quality of our program and our teachers’ commitment to training and growth. Our work is rooted in three core, guiding principles: 

• Provide authentic, hands-on learning experiences inspired by Jewish values
• Partner with families and community members to care for the whole child
• Support play-based, developmentally appropriate activities focused on interdisciplinary concepts. 

Class Overview

Peelim (Elephants)
1’s turning 2 

Beth Meyer Preschool’s youngest students tap into their natural curiosity in a structured and facilitated environment that introduces a preschool schedule, play-based learning, and new surroundings. 

Doobim (Bears)
2’s turning 3 

Doobim students grow their independence, self-esteem, and cooperation skills. As their play transforms from independent and parallel to interactive, their social-emotional development accelerates. 

Nimarim (Tigers)
3’s turning 4 

Complex and imaginative play expands as Nimarim strengthen their verbal and social abilities. Our morot (teachers) take increasing direction on themes and concepts from our students — we follow their interests and co-explore with them the natural world. 

Ariyot (Lions)
Pre-k

Ariyot continue on their learning journeys as they become ready for kindergarten, and explore and create in a myriad of subjects.
