As part of our morning curriculum, the children participate in regularly scheduled specialty programs each week:

Music with Mr. Charley

Israeli Dance with Morah Sharon

The children enjoy playing outside on the playground or in our new indoor playgroom each day!

We are so excited about our new indoor playroom filled with colorful climbing apparatus and other gross and fine motor skill-enhancing toys and equipment.  We also are renovating the outdoor play area. Thank you to the families who have donated to the Playground Fund to date. As more money comes in, we will add more toys and equipment to the play areas.

All donations are tax-deductible.  Send check to:  SSLC Playroom Fund, 1401 Arcola Ave., Silver Spring, MD  20902.
