Dear Parents,


Welcome to the Chaya Mushka Children’s House.  We are very pleased that you chose us as a “home-away-from-home” for your preschooler.  We understand the awesome responsibility and would appreciate the opportunity to be entrusted with your child(ren).

The word “Chinuch” encompasses much more than “education”.  It is about nurturing, developing, caring, guiding and being role models while educating.  We try to live up to this ideal.

At CMCH we offer a wide variety of programs to meet the different needs of our diverse families. 


Our school provides an enriching academic and social experience for your preschooler. We work tirelessly to instill a love of Hashem and the joy of Judaism into the hearts and minds of our young students.

The bright and beautiful classrooms hold purposeful materials and manipulatives for the children to explore.


Over time, the parents, teachers, and children form a close alliance that benefits each child in our school.


Please take some time to explore our website to get a sense of the incredible gift that is CMCH education.  

We hope you will set up a time to come visit us in person.  I look forward to greeting you personally and welcoming you to our CMCH family.



Dassie New
