Hi My Name is Lieba Hard and I am a Mother of six children and Grand-children and have had the privilege of teaching Pre-Nursery for many years, here and in South Africa. I was nominated for the”Prime-Ministers Award” by the Parents of the school where I taught, perhaps because of the famous Torah saying that goes “what comes from the heart, goes to the heart”.
Hello, my name is Estee Silver. I am so excited to be teaching for the Pj plus program this year. I bring with me many years of experience in teaching and program planning.

My 3 year old and I both look forward to attending our P.1 Plus class every week. It's amazing how much we accomplish in an hour - a craft, a story, a snack, singing and dancing - and all on theme! The Program is fostering a sense of yiddishkeit in my son.liked that I could create answers with the tools but using my own examples.
