The study sheds light into why Jewish families chose to send their children to Jewish preschools, their attitudes regarding their actual Jewish preschool experience, the extent of the linkages between the Jewish preschool and the synagogue, and between preschool and the local Jewish Day School. The schools studied were either situated either in Reform or Conservative synagogues, or affiliated to the JCC's.
