What We Do

The Curriculum:

Kids on slide Pom 2-2013

Throughout the week children are offered arts activities in music, drama, and fine arts. Out­door and indoor play is a daily part of the schedule. A science component is incorporated into the curriculum, as well as several field trips. Children are read to every day.

No child is obliged to participate in any of the structured activities; playing is just fine.

At Pomegranate we observe the Jewish traditions of Shabbat each Friday and celebrate Jewish holidays with foods and rituals.  We welcome families of all faiths.

Plays

The children, through imaginative play, create their own stories and present them in play form once a year. They also help paint the scenery, make props and help sew the costumes.

Art Night

Pomegranate families gather once during the school year to work collaboratively on an art project.

 POM Intergenerational Art

Inter-generational Art

Once a year, the children do an art project with a grandparent or elder from the community based on a particular artist. For example, pictured here are students working in the style of Louise Nevelson, who was known for her monochromatic wooden wall pieces.
