We are a Jewish Preschool that has been educating children in the San Gabriel Valley for over 30 years.

Since 1981, B’nai Simcha has been providing the children of the San Gabriel Valley an opportunity to receive an outstanding early education in a nurturing Jewish environment. The school helps families with young children to reconnect to the Jewish community with many of our parents becoming leaders in our local synagogues.  Feedback over the years has also revealed that interfaith families feel safe with us as they consider raising Jewish children. B’nai Simcha provides a home away from home for our local Israeli community, many of them here as post-doctoral researchers at Caltech or City of Hope.  And now, we are seeing alumni of our school returning as parents of a new generation of B’nai Simcha students.

Research confirms what we already knew; future learning success is based on a good foundation achieved in the first five years of life. This time is critical, not only to a child’s academic success, but also to the formation of a sense of identity. In response to this, the school serves 55 students each day in both morning and full time programs, running a year round campus to meet the diverse needs of our families.
