I could not be happier with Adat Shalom. My children love the spacious campus, warm teachers and cultural experience. The extended day (8-5:30) is a lifesaver. As a working mom it feels good to know that I'm leaving my child in the care of people who are creative, conscientious, loving and best of all enjoy what they do.
We've been an Adat Shalom ECC for many years. All of our (age appropriate) children have attended the nursery school. The campus is warm and inviting. There are many outside play areas, separated by age/skill with plenty of shade. The school is excellent for parents searching for a full day program for an 18month old - 5 year old. The school is open from 8am - 5:30pm. Regular instruction is 9-12:30 or 9-3pm. It's been a huge relief knowing that we had a safe and friendly environment for our family when we are working. They provide gymnastics, yoga, holiday activities (like the shofar factory, the matzah factory, etc), regular shabbat services and challah making on Friday's. And, the community is both small enough to feel comfortable and large enough to feel protected. We're grateful that this is our neighborhood school! Tuition is incredibly reasonable. It's easily 15-20% less than other Jewish pre-schools in a 5 mile radius.
Adat Shalom is a great find! We were new to LA and enrolled our daughter here because it was such a warm and friendly place with a focus on education and enrichment. We have been so happy with the curriculum, and the amazing enrichment programs. The tuition is incredibly reasonable, teachers are great, the director is awesome and we love their full day program!
