Zareinu Educational Centre: A school and treatment centre for children with physical and developmental challenges.
Making Miracles Happen
Zareinu provides integrated and individualized evidence-based therapy and education programs that directly support students with special needs to engage, learn and achieve in personalized, caring and supportive Jewish-learning environments.
Zareinu is supported by an energetic team working together to raise awareness and funds in order to provide the best possible opportunities for children with special needs and their families. Through exceptional events, fundraising initiatives and advocacy to combat prejudice towards children with challenges, Zareinu offers the unique environment and opportunity to receive an adapted general and Jewish education together with their required therapies and treatments under one roof.
What We Do
Zareinu offers families a wide range of therapeutic and educational programs directly designed and delivered by qualified educators and therapists in its main centre and in satellite classes located in other Jewish Day schools. Zareinu provides individualized programs for each student and works with a dynamic team to implement these therapies at every opportunity.
For a full list of our programs see Our School / Program.
