"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.

Making Soap

 Our own preschool naturalist, Rachel Goldman, visited our 4 year olds classes this week, beginning our year long quest to bring education and hands on learning about the environment and the natural world into our classrooms. Today’s experiment, creating soap by combining elements found in nature, like glycerin, and pure scents like lemon, mint and rosemary, allowed our preschoolers to comprehend that there are many things surrounding us that are used for more than one purpose. In their usual inquisitive style, they had an conducted and interactive experiment along with which came the understanding of concepts of physical science and basic chemistry. See pictures below
