At Temple Emanu-El Early Learning Center, we understand the challenges working parents can face when it comes to getting their children to and from school. That is why both our Early Learning Center and VPK programs offer extended care hours from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm throughout the school year. With the exception of a select number of Jewish holidays, we follow the Sarasota County School District calendar and are even open on professional days.  We offer both full and part time programs.  Two, three and five days programs are available.

Our School Hours:
Preschool Classroom Hours - 9:00am - 12:30pm
Extended Care Hours - 7:30am - 5:30pm
VPK Classroom Hours - 8:30am - 11:30am
VPK Wrap-Around - 8:30am - 3:30pm; 7:30am - 5:30pm
