Mekor HaChinuch is a remarkable institution that services the hundreds of elementary school students whose learning challenges prevent them from thriving in a mainstream classroom setting. Founded and guided by the renowned Mrs. Lea Schlesinger, M.S. Special Ed., Mekor Hachinuch’s outstanding team of devoted supervisors, therapists, and educators nurtures each child’s growth developing their latent abilities and eventually enabling them to successfully mainstream. Mekor Hachinuch’s self-contained classrooms operate almost invisibly within the framework of Lakewood’s yeshivos and girls schools, ensuring utmost discretion and virtually eliminating stigma. Currently more than 150 children are enrolled in 17 classes at Mekor Hachinuch.
