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.

Project Approach- Fire Safety- our 2's project

You may have heard about the wonderful lessons taught in the 2 year old program and gradual separation classes if you have a child in these classes. But I would like to share with the rest of the school how we can extended the learning about fire safety for our youngest children in the school. The two year old classes decided to introduce the concept of fire safety using the project approach. The staff in these classes created a web to give direction as to where the topic might lead. Classes explored the dress of fireman ,the actual fire truck and hydrant, the noises of the trucks, and fire safety as well as fire itself.


Each class explored this unit in different ways and here are some photos
