Our Philosophy

 

Early Childhood Center uses an eclectic approach to education, combining developmental and academic models to help achieve social/emotional goals and ensure preparedness for kindergarten programs and beyond. We create a warm, loving environment for children to explore new concepts, develop a love of learning and build their confidence within a community steeped in Jewish values.

Our approach

 

Our team of teachers and administrators work together to develop plans for each child's learning and development. We keep developmentally appropriate practices in mind, while keeping an eye on the child's milestones. Our school believes strongly in partnering with parents and creating consistency between home and school.
