Side By Side – Summer 2016
Two sessions per week for 8 weeks (16 total sessions)

Emanu-El’s Side by Side program introduces our youngest children (18 months to 2.5 years) to a preschool environment with their parent or caregiver by their side. Our Side by Side program is rich in Jewish content, celebrating Jewish traditions and holidays. This program will be a wonderful introduction to preschool that will deepen relationships in our community and launch a meaningful beginning to the school experience for both parents and children.

We are extending the ending date to October 8 so families get the full 12 weeks. Questions? Please do not hesitate to email Nika.

Seeking Babysitters and Childcare Providers
Whether you are a teen, parent or grandparent, our congregants are looking for childcare help and we wish to reconnect them with you! If you are dependable, responsible, have a special interest in young children, and are safety conscious we would like to add you to our registry.
We will try to make introductions, whenever possible, between available babysitters and parents in need by neighborhood. To add your name to our Congregation-wide registry, please contact contact Rachel Schonwetter at (415) 751-2541 x171 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
