Sara with two of her children and two grandchildren.

Welcome to our Florence Brownstein Preschool Family.

In 1991, I was a young mother with a 2 year old child, and like you, I was looking for a preschool that would match the vision I had of a magical place where my child and family could blossom. Like any mother, I wanted the best for my child, and good wasn’t good enough. After an unsuccessful search for the preschool that had it all, I resolved to create my own – for my child, for my children to be, and for the hundreds of students who would enroll and become like my own children. With the drive and passion of a mother, I set out to create the perfect preschool that would merge the unconditional love and high-standard academics that every child deserves. I have been fortunate to have all my children go through my preschool, with my youngest graduating in 2019 and my first grandchild entering our preschool the following year in 2020.
At FBP, our philosophy is that every child deserves the best.

and believing that they could reach their potential they will live up to the lens we’ve reflected. The best of yesterday constantly needs upgrading. As a mom I have my finger on the pulse; we constantly make changes to improve our program for our students.

Our preschool is truly a magical place for our children and their families. The friendships formed by the children and by the parent body are priceless. Joining the Florence Brownstein Preschool means being welcomed into a loving extended family. We are so excited to be a partner in the miraculous and wondrous development of your child. As an extension to the learning, discovery, and love that happens at home, we support not only your child but you, our parents, in navigating each new phase and developmental stage of your child’s wonderful journey. I am humbled by the choice you’ve made of having us be a part of the wonderful journey.

Take a look around and learn what we’re all about. We look forward to hearing from you.

Featured Testimonials

We have been part of this beautiful community for six years now, and all three of our children have attended the school. I cannot say enough about the warm and nurturing teachers, the superior quality of education, and the attention and care provided to my kids in every aspect of the school environment. Sara and her staff lead the school with a warmth that is felt by everyone who enters its doors. It is a magical place - a nurturing environment for kids to learn, explore and grow. Thank you for giving my children the gift of learning, a love of Judaism, and the excitement to come to school every single day.
