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.

Like Tree, Like Child: Tu B’Shevat & Nurturing
TREES ARE LIKE PEOPLE
In ancient times, the Jewish holiday of Tu B’Shevat — New Year for the trees — served primarily as a marker within the agriculture cycle. Over the centuries, however, the holiday has taken on new meanings and metaphors.
Medieval kabbalists, for example, perceived Tu B’Shevat as a celebration of commonalities among trees and mankind. As they saw it, trees and people alike benefitted from deep roots, a strong base, and consistent nurturing.
