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.

Sukkot

Sukkot  begins four days after Yom Kippur. It is one of the three pilgrimage festivals. Sukkot, a Hebrew word meaning “booths” or “huts,”refers to the Jewish festival of giving thanks for the fall harvest, as well as the commemoration of the forty years of Jewish wandering in the desert after Sinai. In ancient times, people would make a pilgrimage to the Temple in Jerusalem to bring the first portion of their harvests to the priests to show thanks to God.On this holiday, we build small temporary shelters called sukkot (plural for sukkah) where families eat, socialize and even sleep, weather
permitting.
Visit our sukkah anytime! Even in the rain!
                                                        In the Sukkah!
Mr. David shook the Lulav!
