What sort of things do Jewish nurseries add that is different to other nurseries?
View answer »

 Jewish nurseries provide many similar activities to other nurseries with the added provision of learning about Jewish traditions. For example, they hold Shabbat parties each Friday, celebrate Jewish festivals with related art work and perhaps special food. The Home Corner might contain items such as candlesticks or a charity box. Jewish values such as hospitality and caring for the environment may be emphasised.
