Our Educational Philosophy: 


Our Philosophy

Unique to Aleph Bay is its approach to learning. Focused on providing a quality learning environment which children will love and embrace, Aleph Bay's learning methodology is entirely activity based. It is all about creativity, innovation and fun learning.

Our philosophy is that children learn best when they enjoy themselves. Every learning outcome is achieved by drawing on a rainbow of activities which have been developed to capture the children’s interest and imagination.

Educational strategies incorporate sensory activities, crafts, music and drama, indoor sports and the latest in modern technology – each session at Aleph Bay is a world of fun. Keeping to our goal to illustrate Jewish life to the fullest – throughout the year we launch educational projects, and initiatives– encouraging students to express their talents and creativity within a Jewish framework, while broadening the Aleph Bay's horizons beyond the classroom.

As role models who live by what they teach, our staff ensure that every child is motivated, stimulated and engaged in thought-provoking and fascinating activities; capturing the soul of Jewish learning and living

Aleph Champ

Aleph Champ, modeled after the Karate Martial Arts system of motivational colored levels, breaks up the Hebrew reading process into bite sized motivational levels which makes learning to read Hebrew an exciting time!

Students start as a white Aleph Champ learning half of the aleph bet. They work their way up through the different “belts” until they become a black Aleph Champ with the ability to read Hebrew fluently from the Siddur (prayerbook).

Each Aleph Champ level has a color coded book, flashcards, workbooks and a medallion which is awarded once a level is passed. All of these factors work together to create the motivation needed for each child to progress at their own pace.

Reading groups are divided by color instead of age group, thereby allowing students to advance at their own level. This program ensures that when students graduate to a new level, they have truly mastered the knowledge-base at their current level. This avoids the common problem of children learning to read without fully mastering a letter, vowel or concept in reading.




Bar Mitzvah

Our tailor-made Judaic curriculum incorporates all fundamental and practical aspects of Jewish life, including: festivals and customs, Jewish history, Bible stories, Mitzvot, Israel, Jewish ethics and general knowledge.

By exploring the central themes, customs, songs and history behind all Jewish festivals, our students learn to celebrate their heritage in a practical relevant and meaningful way. From our Shabbat dinners to Pesach model seders and our pre-festival educational workshops and carnivals, every tradition comes alive.

Through our comprehensive Jewish ethics topics, which incorporate values of compassion, respect, responsibility and integrity, children learn to value the fundamentals of being a ‘mentsch’ – a caring and respectful human being.
