About this campaign


About us

At Preschool of the Arts our mission is to educate young Jewish minds in a warm and creative environment, inspiring students to develop their unique social, intellectual, and physical talents. Our Mommy & Me program is a chic new meetup for young families and their tots.


The Mommy & Me - H.U.G. Campaign

Give us a HUG & help us grow lifetime friendships! The Mommy & Me has brought together over a hundred young Jewish moms and dads to spend time with their little ones and other young families in an engaging and creative environment, while socializing and forming new friendships. Next year, with the help the HUG campaign, we look forward to continuing our Mommy & Me flagship class and adding so much more!

We love attending Preschool of the Arts with Morah Esther. She is so creative and makes sure to connect with each student. Orly loves coming to class every week and gets so excited to visit each center!

My one year old loved coming to the class. She can be shy when meeting adults one on one but she loved Morah Esther from the moment they met. The centers are great, rug time warm and fun, entire class an absolute pleasure to attend with my toddler!

-Shana Katz


The class is so inviting for both moms and toddlers. There are always new activities to engage in each week, and Esther is so creative with her presentation! My son asks all the time to go to Mommy and Me class!

Madison and I both look forward to coming to mommy and me each week. We both love to see friends and do activities that we don't get to do at home!

Esther provides a warm and creative environment. I also appreciate the opportunities to expose my baby to Jewish content in an open and explorative way!
