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.

Camp Blast

Friendship was the focus as the campers “blasted off” for a summer of fun. The campers first introduced themselves to each other by making Friendship Pudding. Each had a turn to shake a closed bowl of chocolate pudding ingredients while telling the group something special about herself. The resulting pudding was an extra delicious treat for all our chaverim (friends), old and new! The campers next made friendship beads out of flour and salt baker’s clay.

They decorated the beads during the week and exchanged them with each other on Friday. Each camper then made their own keepsake bracelet with beads made by her fellow campers. Other exciting friendship activities included creating treasure chest collages with Ms. Robin, our visiting artist, for a camp “Friends are Treasures” display, and designing a collaborative friendship map. Other highlights of the week were soccer, My Gym, impromptu puppet shows, silly balloon games and relays, science experiments on the sense of taste, and a special Shabbat celebration with David Sherman, Director of Temple Beth Am Religious School
