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.

Have You Filled A Bucket Today?
Rabbi Alon’s sermon at Rosh Hashanah Children’s service helped us to understand what really makes kids HAPPY.
As parents and caregivers our job is to fill our children’s bucket with love. Every time we hold, caress, nurture, sing, and provide loving attention, we are developing our children’s emotional health. As children learn to reciprocate this love, they will lead happier lives. So as parents, we need to fill our child’s invisible bucket, and to teach children how to fill their own bucket! “You can fill your bucket when you show love to someone, when you say or do something, or even when you give someone a smile. That’s a bucket filler,” says Carol McCloud, author of the book.
Remember not only your children need to fill their buckets. Bucket filling is for the young and old and it makes everyone feel good! When you fill someone else’s bucket, it automatically fills your bucket too.
I hope to see everyone at our Yom Kippur Children’s Service on September 26! Bring your bucket filled with food to give to those who need! You will be filling someone else’s bucket!
Bring back your bucket with canned foods
