Shalom Yeladim – The Judie Gerstein Early Learning Center is a program of the Morristown Jewish Center Beit Yisrael. We were formed for the dual purposes of serving as an outreach to the Jewish community and, along with the family, reinforcing Jewish traditions and customs practiced at home. Our synagogue is affiliated with United Synagogue for Conservative Judaism. We are licensed by the State of New Jersey. Our school is designed to provide a particular and unique experience for  preschoolers of all denominations.

We were created as an alternative to other large-schools.  Class size is restricted not by licensing requirements but by our knowledge of the needs of young children. We know that love of learning and intellectual acuity flourishes in surroundings that are safe, nurturing, stimulating and inviting. The ability to learn follows naturally from the development of social, emotional and physical skills. Every school activity is planned with these goals in mind. We pride ourselves on the fact that each teacher is familiar with each child, and each child becomes familiar with every adult on staff.  For more information call 973-538-8284.
