About Us

Temple Beth Or Preschool is a Jewish learning environment that offers a strong, connected community. At TBOP, we help children and families with diverse needs, abilities, and beliefs thrive.

TBOP uses role modeling, active play, and discovery to teach our children about Jewish values, such as taking care of the Earth, giving tzedakah/charity, sharing with others, and being kind. In our halls and classrooms, you will hear a symphony of voices laughing, singing, playing, making plans, and engaging in sweet conversation.

We believe raising a child is a partnership with our school community involving parents, family and educators. We support our families and we take pride in the growth of their children. Parents also are welcome in the classroom at any time and play an active role in the life of the preschool. They participate in social and educational events as well as serve on the board of directors and volunteer committees.

Here are just a few things that set us apart:

  • A five-star designation, the highest license rating issued by North Carolina’s Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Child Development.
  • Recipient of 2018, 2019 and 2020 Indy Week Winner, Best Early Childhood Learning Facility in Wake County.
  • We maintain the highest level of safety standards.
  • A low teacher/student ratio, below what is required by the state.
  • We have proudly sustained an active relationship with Growing Together, a non-profit preschool that works with children living in public housing, since the early 1990’s. Through this partnership we teach our students the many wonderful ways of being a good friend to those in need.

Weekly Shabbat

Each Friday our students join Music Director Lexi Hallman and one of our Rabbis for an exciting Shabbat service. This is a special time of the week the entire school comes together for exciting stories, fun songs and, of course, delicious challah. Our services are opened to parents and scheduled visitors of our school.
