How can we introduce Jewish customs, values, rituals, and beliefs of Judaism to our youngest students?

How do we use the prepared classroom environment to stimulate learning based on rabbinic texts and create the conditions that support teachers to design Jewish learning environments?

Through a close look at several early childhood classrooms and research conducted in progressive Jewish education settings, explore how to use the classroom environment to plan rich Jewish learning experiences for young children.
