Kindergym

Kindergym is a play program for children under 36 months from families of all religious and cultural backgrounds. If you have a beginning walker or a runner who is jumping off everything, our Kindergym is for you!

Climbers, slides, rocking horses, cozy coupe cars, see-saw, fire trucks, and push cars for beginning walkers, small trampoline, puzzles, painting easels, music, parachute play, singing, stories, and so much more! Come join us in our very large, activity-filled room to play together and make new friends.

We practice respectful caregiving so that each child is welcome to express their feelings while we create a safe, supportive environment. Attendees do not have to be TBA members or Jewish.

Jeni Markowitz Clancy and puppet SukkotMeet our wonderful Kindergym teacher, Jeni Markowitz Clancy!

Bay Area families have loved wiggling, giggling, laughing and playing with Jeni and her puppets for more than two decades!

You may have run into her at the wildly popular family music program “Boogie to the Beat” she led for Parents Place for more than ten years. She also led family music and movement programs for Congregation Sherith Israel in San Francisco where she served as the synagogue’s early childhood director.

Jeni was awarded the prestigious Helen Diller Award for Excellence in Jewish Education in 2020, granted a Family Education Fellowship by the San Francisco Bureau of Jewish Education, participated in the Jewish Resource Specialist program sponsored by the Jim Joseph Foundation, and was a member of the first cohort of Reshet educators sponsored by the Jewish Community Federation of San Francisco.

Jeni is the current manager of Jewish Baby Network’s San Francisco region. She lives in San Francisco with her husband, their two daughters, and too many puppets to count.
