Wimbledon’s Family Programme for 0-4s and their parents
Playshul is experiential Jewish learning for young children and their parents through play and creativity, fun and friendship. We follow the pattern of the Jewish Year; decorating our sukkah, making hannukiyot, planting at Tu b’Shevat, giving gifts at Purim etc. with craft and cookery activities linked to each festival.
This year we shall be exploring our Jewish homes and how its Jewish objects help to give structure to our lives.
Each session includes art, craft, construction or cookery, snack time with brahot, singing and dancing and we are able to take advantage of a professionally designed outdoor play area for pre-school children. Oral Hebrew is integrated throughout the morning and we are fortunate that one of the Playshul team is a specialist Hebrew teacher. There is plenty of learning through play in the home corner with dressing up, playdo, puzzles and games. We are developing a lending library of children’s and adult books on Jewish subjects.
The Playshul will set up the activities, structure the day and support all the families in their learning but the emphasis of the Playshul is for children and parents to enjoy being Jewish together in a stimulating, welcoming and fun educational environment.

We have been raising funds to refurbish the family room which is used as the Playshul on Sundays and for young children and family services on specific occasions. We have been able to carry out this refurbishment through the generous time and financial donations of members. But we have much that we still want to do. So please help us by making a donation.
