Welcome to the Etta Natalie Rosenblatt Preschool!

At the TSB Preschool, each child is a unique and valued member of the Preschool family. We are licensed by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and follow the PA Early Learning Standards. Our children develop skills including sharing, taking turns, working through relationships with teachers and peers, and following directions. Play is an important part of our day. Through play, children become aware of the world around them and build a sense of community. We are fortunate to have outstanding trained and experienced early childhood educators who create nurturing and stimulating classroom environments. We hope that we can partner with you to build a foundation of early learning with you and your children.

About Our Preschool


Our Mission

It is the mission of the Etta Natalie Rosenblatt Preschool at Temple Sholom in Broomall, the only Reform congregation in Delaware County, to provide a strong foundation in both Jewish and secular early childhood education in a safe, nurturing environment, where children are free to grow and develop.

Positive Jewish Identity

Recognizing the importance of forming a positive Jewish identity, we expose children to Jewish culture and tradition. This is done through music, stories, special foods, holiday celebrations, blessings, Friday morning Tot Shabbat, Monday morning Havdalah, and interaction with our Rabbi Peter Rigler and Cantor Jamie Marx. We incorporate Jewish values into our curriculum throughout the year. Our goal is to nurture in each child a strong identity and love of Judaism.

Program Features

  • Accepting children ages 3 months through 5 years
  • Small class sizes in a nurturing and stimulating environment offering flexibility of days and times
  • Weekly specials including music, Israeli dancing, children’s fitness, and science exploration
  • Camp Menschy offering a fun and exciting summer

Camp Menschy

Each summer we open “Camp Menschy.” Camp is available for all children beginning at 3 months old through children entering our pre-k program. Camp differs from school in that we offer daily water play and more time for ‘campers’ to experience the outdoors. Camp runs approximately 9 weeks a summer.


Preschool Registration opens each year in mid-winter and works on a rolling basis until classes fill up. In-house families have priority and then registration opens for the general public. Once classes are full, waitlists will be opened.


Tuition for both camp and school is based on child’s age and schedule and can be obtained by contacting the school office.

For more information on tuition or registration, please email the preschool director.
