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.

Birthday of the Trees

Thank you for joining us at our celebration this morning!!!!!


We celebrate Tu BiSh'vat by expressing joy and thankfulness for trees, harvests, and the natural world. Many families plant trees at home and in Israel, and eat delicious fruits and greens in celebration of this “New Year of the Trees.” During this agricultural festival, we care about our and consider our obligation to care for the environment and our sacred responsibility to share the fruits of God’s earth with all.

You can incorporate social justice themes into your Tu BiSh'vat celebration in the following ways.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
In honor of Tu BiSh'vat, make a commitment as a family or with friends to focus on one or more of these environmental practices:
·         Reduce waste by buying products that use less packaging.
·         Use the reverse side of paper as scrap paper or for art projects.
·         Learn about your community’s most up-to-date regulations on recycling.
Get Back to Nature
Adopting natural areas, such as parks, streams, and roadsides, are projects individuals of all ages can get involved in to enhance the beauty and environmental quality of natural green spaces. Together with family members and friends, you can informally “adopt” an area simply by pledging to clean it regularly and advocating to the local government for its needs; in some areas, more formal adoption programs are available. Cleaning up a natural area near home can make a big difference – not only to the ecological health of the area itself, but to the esteem of the neighborhood around the area.
