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.

Because of the natural positive feelings in families, holidays become important remembrances both at home and in the community.
Create holiday customs to repeat each year, giving children a sense of continuity. Each year a child learns interesting facts about the festivals which sparks their interest anew each year.
Group festivities help build relationships and friendships as we celebrate together. Celebrations together bring warmth and happiness into our hearts. These feelings of comfort satisfy this emotional need as each holiday comes.
For very young children, probably the most important emotion is joy---- having fun with religion. They will remember these good times later and will turn to spirituality when they need comfort.
So let’s celebrate together for the High Holiday days- Monday, Children's Rock Service 2:00 p.m.
Everyone is invited!!!
At our program, Apples and Honey, we began our celebration of Rosh Hashanah. Thank you to Rabbi Alon, Cantor Tanya, Yael Lawrence, Rachael Ruiz, Jennifer Shaver, Raliegh Hahn and Ms Sherrie in the office and Alfredo for helping make this program successful!
