Do You Have to Be Jewish to Attend?
We have families of many faiths, as well as atheist and agnostic. Families choose Beth El Learning Center for its educational philosophy, nurturing environment, friendly atmosphere, wonderful teachers and outstanding facilities. Judaism is part of the curriculum primarily through Jewish values, Jewish holidays and Tot Shabbat, and parents of all backgrounds find that to be a valuable aspect of their child’s early education.
What Are Your Fees?
Our fees are competitive with area pre-schools and childcare centers. There are many options of days and times from which to choose, as well as sibling, discounts, early registration discounts and more. Please see our tuition sheet for more information.

Preschool children can bring their own kosher-style, nut free lunches. Healthy snacks are provided during the day. Parents provide the infants with all necessary bottles and food. Our hot lunch program, catered by Artisan Food is offered for 18 months+ for an additional fee.
How do I Know my child will be safe?
We pride ourselves in being a very safe and secure campus, with the children’s safety our utmost priority. All visitors including parents must sign in or swipe their identity card at the front desk when entering the campus. Security officers check to ensure that each car entering the campus has a Beth El car decal. If not, the security officer must call in each visitor to the front desk and gather vehicle and identity information. There are security cameras installed throughout the grounds. Children are never left alone in a classroom. We participate in fire drills and emergency response drills. Our gated campus has only one entry which is guarded by security at all times. Our teachers are trained in CPR and first aid. Our staff is screened according to the Palm Beach County health department regulations and will only be hired after meeting our high standards.
Temple Beth El believes in community and provides Temple membership while your child is enrolled in preschool. We strongly encourage families to get involved and take advantage of the amazing opportunities to build family connections to the community and for personal spiritual growth.
