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.

Set Limits Without Guilt- Conscious Discipline class

Ginny Luther, a specialist on Conscious discipline helped parents to understand how to set limits without gullt. It is a fact that we discipline our children how we were disciplined as children. Most of us were raised on fear-based discipline. We rely on guilt or anger to manage our children making our children responsible for the way we feel in a moment of conflict. The end result is that we end up teaching behaviors we are trying to eliminate. As parents we cannot be passive in our discipline style; we cannot ask our children to behave. We also cannot be aggressive and seek to blame or over power.

We must be assertive which allows us to have the voice that others will listen to! Focus on the behavior you want, not what you don’t want. Give children positive choices!  Those that attended also got to dance a little to relieve a little stress! Thank you to Yael Lawrence for bringing this parenting class to Temple Beth Am.
