About Temple Sholom Selma Maisel Nursery School

SMNS was founded in 1991 by Temple Sholom congregant Selma Maisel.

It was Selma’s dream to create a pre-school that would provide a strong foundation for a lifetime love of learning. Today, we keep this vision central to our program by building skills and knowledge in an environment that holds kindness, mutual respect and cooperation as important values.


Our program includes part day (2’s, 3’s and 4’s), as well as full-day (infant/toddler through pre-school) options. We also offer Little Explorers as a non-separating introduction to pre-school for children between 1 to 2 years old, in addition to our Itsy Bitsy Playgroup for parents with infants/toddlers under 18 months.


At SMNS, we strive to stay on the cutting edge of early childhood education.

We have added unique indoor learning spaces such as a dedicated STEAM lab, recycling room, gymnastics studio, and imagination playground to enhance our curriculum. Children enjoy taking daily trips outside to care for our garden, build in the wooden block center, and explore our child-size town and state-of-the art multi-level playground.

Our teachers and staff are both experienced and professional, and support an individualized approach to education and care. We are continuing to follow all early childhood recommendations and regulations to ensure a safe and healthy environment during Covid-19.


Children at SMNS enjoy the wonderful richness of Shabbat, Jewish holidays and traditions through music, stories and creative activities.

We often draw on the resources of Temple Sholom’s clergy and professional staff, and all of our families are encouraged to participate in the Temple’s programming geared for young children and their parents.


We take great pride in our diverse specials and after-school enrichment programs, which promote hands-on learning through exciting educational activities.

Examples of specials included gym, music and movement, and drumming. Examples of after-school enrichments sessions include Gardening, Rad Lab Science, Ballet, Yoga, Sports School and Cooking.
