Led by Senior Director Kelly Dotson, Rosenberg Early Childhood Center is located in the Inner Richmond at 325 Arguello Boulevard, just blocks from the JCCSF. Set inside the beautiful historic landmark Campfire Girls building, the school features spacious classrooms, an outdoor play area, garden space and art studio. Children and teachers also make regular trips to the Presidio for outdoor time.
Our preschools are built upon shared goals, values and knowledge that deliver the highest quality experience possible. We’re committed to creating an inclusive community that’s infused with meaningful Jewish values. We celebrate holidays with our children and families throughout the year as well as a weekly Shabbat. Our program is built on the fundamental premise that children learn and understand their world through play. Inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy, we provide a variety of opportunities for learning, exploration, creativity and self-expression.

The school's approach, space, and leadership team foster an environment that builds good kids. During our time there, the parent community provided wonderful support and camaraderie as well.
Two of our children attended Rosenberg for three years each and we can say, without a doubt, that the experience was a transformative one for each of them. The environment, the staff, the facility and the parent community were all exceptional and the bonds of friendship formed in the Rosenberg community will last us a lifetime.
Staff are trained and coached to really listen to the kids and understand their needs before deciding how to work with them. The result are children who have a strong sense of who they are and their own agency in the world.
How Rosenberg adapted to COVID really highlights its strengths . . . [The teachers] talk with the kids and really engage the whole child in understanding why things are different and why it's okay because it keeps us all safe. I am so grateful to have Rosenberg as a partner in parenting during this experience and being apart of the Rosenberg community has been an incalculable benefit.
