KANE STREET KIDS
A Jewish Preschool program that nurtures the cognitive, emotional and spiritual development of children and their families. The Kane Street Early Childhood Center is affiliated with the Kane Street Synagogue, a synagogue affiliated with the Conservative Movement. The school accepts children of all nationalities, races and creeds and without reference to their parents’ religious affiliations; we teach, celebrate and observe the traditional Jewish practices of Shabbat (the Sabbath), Holidays and Kashrut (Jewish Dietary Laws). Our aim is to provide high quality, developmentally appropriate childcare that nourishes children spiritually, intellectually and physically.
Welcome to the NEW 2018 Kids Group!D. attends Kane Street's 2's program and is loving it.
Review from the 2017/2018 PSP Daycare, Preschool, PreK, Kindergarten SurveyA lovely, warm, environment with endless creative curriculum. Dedicated, experienced, well supported staff and administrators. My twins rush right in to classroom, barely wait to say goodbye.
Review from the 2016/2017 PSP Daycare, Preschool, PreK, Kindergarten SurveyType: Preschool About the facility: Has outdoor space, Has afterschool options, Has early morning hours Review: A loving, caring program with excellent teachers - we like the focus on play as well as elaborate curriculum that completely engaged our daughter - the solar system, dinosaurs and fossils, babies, transportation "units" were a few highlights. Pre-math games, literacy games and other programming meant our daughter is well prepared for kindergarten next fall. Strong community and many other programs to support families with young children. Also light bright classrooms, big common spaces for play in bad weather.
Summer Camp Survey 2016Age of child: 2 Review: He really enjoyed it. It was a really nice transition from going to pre-school 2 days a week to 5 days a week. I think he will be more comfortable now starting the 5 days a week in the Fall. It was a small program which made it intimate and nice for this age group. What would you change about the program, if anything? I wish they also offered it in August. It only runs through the end of July.
Review Submitted via 2014-2015 Daycare/Preschool SurveyNote: this member reviewed this facility in a prior year. Program: Orange 2s Length of time: 1/2 days MWF Child’s Age: 2-3 years Type of facility: Privately run daycare/preschool with multiple classes and teachersThere is little/no parental involvement with the administration or running of the facility. REVIEW: The 2s teacher Nari is amazing, she is incredibly committed to her job and takes it very seriously. She connects well with all the kids and has strong communication with parents throughout the year. We had 2 parent teacher conferences where we got individual feedback and emails weekly about what the class was doing. My daughter learned about all of the Jewish holidays and was able to start doing the prayers for shabbat at home. Would you recommend? Highly recommend Would you send your child again? Absolutely

Review from PSP Survey, 2010Name of Program: 2 days/wk, 9-4 KID AGE:2-3 years This school is connected to Kane Street Synagogue. PROS: have an outdoor space they use when it is nice and a large indoor space so the kids to get physical exercise every day. Near the F train Good hours Nice facilities - sunny, clean, relatively new, etc. Lots of toys and activities that are age appropriate Teachers seem nice. My son seems happy to go there. Diapers are changed frequently. The afternoon group is mixed age. CONS: Communication is TERRIBLE! Calls aren't returned, calendars aren't posted online, voicemail isn't updated for vacations, notes go unanswered,etc. This is true for the director and at least one teacher. Sometimes things that they say they will do aren't done. High end of the middle price range. They don't seem to go on any trips, or at least haven't so far. OTHER: It is more religious than we thought it would be - i.e. they say prayers on a daily basis. It is a small school, with few students. Highly Recommend/Recommend or Do Not Recommend?--Recommend with reservations Review Date: Fall 2010
