"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.

Enjoying the Beach in the Bahamas
What does Ms Paula's vacation have to do with preschool? Ms Paula loves the beach and loved studying with our Shining Stars on their beach project this month. So Ms Paula's vacation was in tune and extended her study of the beach in the Bahamas. Did you know that lobsters march leg to leg on the ocean bottom after a hurricane. That is what was happening after Hurricane Sandy in the bahamas. Of course conch shells were everywhere in the beautiful surroundings!
I hope on your next vacation you can relax, meditate,and enjoy the beautiful beaches that surround us!
In this busy world, let's remember the nature around us to help us decompress. I did!
