Adventure Rabbi Kids
ARK 1-2
An Adventure in Jewish Education

*Adventure * Learning * Community * Fun *

Back to Adventure Rabbi Kids (ARK) Overview >>

An Adventure for Boys & Girls entering 1st-2nd Grade

  • Does your son or daughter enjoy learning through stories, movement, songs and games?

  • Does he or she thrive in a social environment and enjoy interacting with other children? And, if not, is he or she open to learning how?

  • Does he or she do well in an experiential education setting, both indoors and outside?

    If so, then this innovative program may be the right fit for him or her.

ARK 1-2, meets 11 times in 9 months. The curriculum for ARK 1-2 is the same as that of our other courses, but altered to be age-appropriate and to suit non-readers and emerging readers. Four times during the year the group will meet with the larger Adventure Rabbi Kids group so that they can have a sense of being part of something larger.

Each class ends with a 15-minute song session, which parents and siblings are invited and encouraged to attend. The song sessions are shared with the entire ARK community.

Our South Boulder location, the beautiful renovated Bear Creek Elementary School near NCAR, gives us easy access to outdoor space as well as a comfortable indoor space suited for children. Bear Creek is located at 2500 Table Mesa Drive Boulder, CO 80305.
