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.

Rosh Hashana is Coming!

Even with one slight hurricane interruption, the Caterpillars are almost ready for Rosh Hashana!

Rosh Hashana is the Jewish New Year, the first major holiday of the Jewish year. Just like New Years, it's a time for celebration and renewal, to prepare and make ourselves ready to be our best for the coming year. We say greetings like Shanah Tovah Umetukah, meaning "a good and sweet New Year" so our year might be as positive as it can be!

Rosh Hashana has many traditions and symbols - the shofar, a horn that is sounded to "awaken" us for the new year; apples and honey, eaten for a sweet year; round challah, meant to symbolize the continuity of the cycle of the year. The Caterpillars fully immersed themselves into getting ready - we had cards to decorate, bread to make, and apples to eat!
