February 2008 Jewish Montessori and Cheder032.jpg

At The Sinai Academy, we bring the best of Montessori, Reggio, Jewish and Child Centred methods of education together. We are here to create a warm, healthy and happy environment where children can grow and develop emotionally and cognitively as well as physically.

We strive to do this in a most professional and caring manner. Additionally, we endeavour to impart a love and flair for the beauty of our religion and culture, as well as nurture and develop faith and trust in G‑d. We hope to inculcate a love for the Holy Land of Eretz Yisraell, all things Jewish and an involvement in the performance of the Mitzvot (precepts) of the Torah. Ivrit - Hebrew language is used in both formal and informal instruction and becomes a part of the daily routine, as well as holiday fun and games.

In early childhood, the seeds of learning, Jewish identity, curiosity and caring are planted. Our program spans a period of intense personal, social and academic growth. Young children develop at different paces. Our teachers are sensitive to the wide range of abilities and developmental levels within this age group. They offer creative activities that fit into the broad developmental continuum represented by the students.

Each classroom has teachers who guide the children and promote active learning, problem-solving, discovery of friendship and exploration of their new, expanded learning world on an individual level. The classroom is a community in which Jewish values are modeled and reinforced and Hebrew language is introduced through songs, games, and simple Alef Bet introduction. The curriculum combines structured and unstructured activities that encourage young children's most important work-creative play. Every day is filled with art, music, stories, language, Jewish living, and hands-on exploration.

Our classrooms are all well-outfitted with many imported preschool furnishings. We have a spaciously designed playground and special outdoor equipment.


Our school is a member of SAMA [South African Montessori Association], and is registered with the goverment school body. We are also the proud Western Cape representatives for 'AREA'- African Reggio Emilia Alliance.  Our school is an affiliate of CECE [Chabad Early Childhood Education] network and the international Chabad Lubavitch movement, that is dedicated to spreading the wonders and rewards of Judaism throughout the globe in a non judgmental and inclusive manner.

Chabad today, is the largest and most dynamic unified religious, educational and social force in the Jewish world. The movement boasts more than three thousand branches in nearly fifty countries on six continents.

Nearly a million Jewish children are touched via our schools, institutions, summer camps and extra curricular programs around the world each year. Our centers everywhere serve the needs of all Jews, no matter their level of knowledge, observance or affiliation.
