K'tanim Preschool

An Extension Of Your Family.

Our K'tanim is a licensed non-profit, nut-free preschool that welcomes children of all faiths and backgrounds. We are a small school of nurturing and experienced early childhood educators, offering a warm, loving, and friendly environment with a perfect student-teacher ratio.

Like you, we value each child’s uniqueness and total, well-rounded development. We build a solid foundation for learning and foster a positive self-image by encouraging curiosity, creativity, independence, socialization skills, and intellectual growth — while instilling a love for and basic understanding of Judaism.

With a daily schedule that is carefully planned yet flexible, your child will be invited to explore the wonders of our world and the richness of our Jewish heritage through creative art, music, foods, stories, and group play. Hands-on activities and problem-solving experiences cultivate language development, sensory discrimination, and fine and gross motor skills.

You are an integral part of your child's first school experience.  

In addition to your ongoing communication with teachers, you are always welcome in all classes to participate, observe, or share a skill or special interest. Further, monthly meetings of all parents enable you to not only get to know other families, but also be part of the decision-making for guiding preschool policies.

Safety comes first. 

•    All staff are certified in pediatric first aid, CPR, and administering medications.
•    Our playground is fenced in and away from the main road.
•    Building security is 24 hours, with outside doors kept locked during preschool hours.
•    All classrooms and activity rooms are designated peanut- and tree-nut-free, and we are happy to make further allergy accommodations.

For more information, please contact Kate Luedtke, K'tanim Preschool Director, at or (203) 374-5544. Registration for coming school year is now in progress. We look forward to welcoming you to the K’Tanim family!
