Welcome !

Early Childhood Center-School Year 2016-2017

"Play is the highest expression of human development."
Welcome to The One School At Temple Beth Am, Celebrating the Whole Child. We understand and respect that every child is essentially, ‘the one.’ Every child is unique. The specifics of how we nurture and grow each child are dependent entirely upon the needs of the child. This is how we celebrate each child - by engaging him or her at his or her point of need. The One School partners with every parent to ensure every child is championed and educated as an individual.

The One School is a NAEYC Accredited, Reggio Emilia Nature-inspired school, serving ages 18 months to five years. The One School offers certified teachers, a low student/teacher ratio, an emergent creative curriculum and specialty areas of study including science, art, music, foreign language and nature study. The One School’s curricula are supplemented by young family programs and parenting workshops, an infant and toddler program, Family Center, Summer Camp, after school enrichment classes and an active and instrumental Parent Teacher Organization. A commitment to contribute to the community and the world at large is also a part of the school’s social justice philosophy.

Children's Food Drive on Yom Kippur

 Tzedakah!

“Tzedek, Tzdek Tirdoff-Justice justice shall you pursue (Deuteronomy 16:20)

 


Although Tzedakah is often translated as “charity,” it has much wider connotations in the sense of giving back, or doing justice. Giving tzedakah is a mitzvah. In the Torah, we are commanded to help, not just because it is a nice thing to do. Giving tzedakah is is the just and right thing to do, and includes giving money ,clothing, food, and time. Food drives are one way to give tzedakah.




At High Holidays this year, our children brought canned foods for the those in need. All the food was donated to Jewish Family Services who will distribute the food. Check out the Temple Beth Am’s facebook for more pictures.
