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.

Cooking At Summer Camp

Did you know that children appreciate a wider variety of food when they participate in preparation. And, don’t be surprised at the number of skills you help children develop along the way. Here are a few reasons to enjoy cooking with our children!
  • Cooking encourages creativity.  Children can make cooking decisions, and add extra features, to their cooking experience. Each activity can give children the opportunity to be creative and unique.
  • Cooking teaches how things change. Through various processes in the kitchen – heating, freezing, grinding, and beating – food is made ready to eat. Cooking can be a great extension of science.  Through the simple mixing of ingredients or watching water boil or freeze, for example, children can experience different states of matter.
  • Cooking builds self-confidence. Realizing they can take part in and contribute to the adult world provides great satisfaction for children and develops positive self-esteem.
  • Thank you to John Marzina and Richard Remmick
    for being our "guest chefs"
