Student Observations
Bridge-Kindergarten 

Each Bridge-K applicant will be observed at his/her preschool or daycare during the month of February by our Bridge-K faculty. The visit is completely unobtrusive and children do not know that they are being observed.

Kindergarten
Kindergarten applicants will be invited to an organized “playdate” at Tehiyah in February. While the children are participating in activities with our Kindergarten teachers and a small group of other applicants, prospective parents will have the opportunity to meet with our Head of School for Q & A.

Enrollment

In agreement with all EBISA schools (East Bay Independent School Association), admission letters will be mailed on March 15, 2018. Contracts and deposits for accepted students are due back by March 23, 2018.

* Tehiyah values its diverse community of learners. In order to assess whether or not we can appropriately serve students, it is crucial that we receive all reports/assessments so that we can assure that all children who are admitted have the opportunity to be successful.

Student Visit
As part of the application process, students spend the day visiting Tehiyah in the company of an assigned buddy, participating in classes with their peers (current grade level).

Our school day begins at 8:20am and ends at 3:30pm. Parents are invited to join their child at Modeh Ani (our daily all-school assembly) at 8:20am.

During the visit, applicants will complete a math assessment and provide a writing sample. No preparations are necessary.

Please bring a vegetarian, nut-free lunch and snack.  Let Maureen know if you would like to try a Tehiyah lunch.

To schedule your child’s visit, please contact Director of Admissions, Maureen Krantz:
