Rabbi Arthur Schneier Park East Day School (RASPEDS) prepares students for the future, instilling within them unparalleled confidence, curiosity, creativity, values, and knowledge. Its interdisciplinary, award-winning curriculum from pre-school to grade eight stimulates students’ minds. The nurturing coed community supports their dreams, and the commitment to Jewish identity from generation to generation welcomes all backgrounds. The school cultivates a lifelong love for learning and provides students with the tools to achieve academic excellence.
For ages 2-5, the school also offers an Early Childhood Summer Program—its signature world-class educational experience, paired with summer fun. Preschoolers are challenged socially, emotionally, and physically in the child-based program. They are encouraged to practice teamwork, develop self-esteem, and build confidence.
Every group is led by a nurturing, licensed teacher along with an experienced assistant. The days are filled with fun summer activities including outdoor swim in wading pools, sprinklers, and playground activities. In addition to fabulous craft projects, your child can look forward to games, science, music, and water play. The children also enjoy activities such as movement, art, cooking, sports instruction and Oneg Shabbat every Friday, as well as several special events.
