Buerger Early Learning Center, located inside of Rodeph Shalom in Philadelphia, provides a full day childcare and preschool program near you for children ages 6 weeks through 5 years old, with a focus on Jewish values.

Rodeph Shalom has partnered with Bright Horizons Family Solutions, a leading national provider of early education and preschools, to manage our Buerger Early Learning Center. Under the supervision of Bright Horizon, the children at Buerger are assured of getting the care that they need, the creative learning experiences they enjoy, and the intellectually challenging opportunities they deserve.  For more information about the Buerger Early Learning Center or to set up a tour, contact Director Leah Briggin at buerger@brighthorizons.com or 267-535-2653.

The Buerger Early Learning Center facilitates a close and supportive community of families, teachers and clergy as we embrace Jewish traditions and values. Our wonderful community instills a love of learning from infants to kindergarten, along with good principles based on Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) to Chesed (loving kindness). This experience provides a basis for the child’s future, continuing from this foundational
period through to secondary school and adulthood. For more information on the Judaic curriculum, contact Andi Miller, Director of Judaic Education for BELC, at amiller@rodephshalom.org or 215-627-6747 x 304.
