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.

“Humor is Scholarly”

"Laughter, silliness, and playfulness can help to make your interactions with children powerful.

Humor extends learning in many ways.  First, humor is play for the brain.  It makes the brain work in new ways.  Humor often involves playing with language....  Through humor, children can develop phonological awareness and add words to their vocabularies.  As children learn to use humor to interact with others, they are learning a lifelong social skill....

Seek out playful moments with your child.  Follow a child's lead or be the leader.  When a child laughs, find out what is tickling her funny bone and join the fun.  Once you know what makes each child laugh, you'll be able to have humorous interactions that will surely get a giggle."  From Exchange.com
