Early Childhood



At PJA we value each child as an individual who learns in a multitude of ways. Our early childhood programs provide welcoming and inclusive settings that recognize children’s diverse abilities, interests, needs, and learning styles.

Teacher Appreciation Week

Toda raba - thank you - to each and every family for making this week so special for our staff! We love our kehillah - community - dearly, and this week wouldn't have been possible without all of you!

Hanukah Spirit Week

What an eventful week we have had at PJA! We have celebrated Hanukah in so many fun and meaningful ways and added an extra dose of joy each day with a special school-wide spirit week.

The Early Childhood Art Studio

We are thrilled to announce the reopening of the Early Childhood Art Studio! This dedicated art space is designed specially for children ages 2-5 by our long-time EC art teacher, Sandi Anslow.

Our Expanding Buddy Program

PJA has had a special buddy program for our Middle School students and our K-2 students for many years. Many students would say that getting to know their younger or older buddies was one of the highlights of their PJA experience. 

Early Childhood

Holiday celebrations have looked very different in PJA’s Early Childhood program in the last couple of years. Take Purim, which we celebrated earlier this month...


Our PJA Pre-k community is pretty special! In Kim Krikorian’s class what started out as an exploration of the lifecycle of a butterfly turned into a thoughtful conversation about kavod (respect), kehillah (community), and diversity.
