Early Morning Drop Off

Register for the Year

Parents whose children attend Temple Rodef Shalom Nursery School have the option to register for TRS’ Early Morning Drop Off.  Registration is for the school year, beginning on the child’s first full day of attendance and finishing on the child’s last day of school.  A minimum of 4 children must be registered for each day for the program to run.  Registration will be on a first come, first served basis.  Spaces are limited.  Further information and application form are available here.

Occasional Drop-In

Parents whose children attend Temple Rodef Shalom Nursery School may request to participate in Drop-In Early Morning Drop Off on a periodic basis.  This does not require registration.  However, it requires at least 24-hour advance notice and will be accommodated only as space allows.  Further information and application form are available here.

The average class has 12-14 children with one teacher and two assistants. The following classes are offered:
