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.

Share our Light

On of the most important values that we can observe and put into practice today is to treat other people with respect, through kind and encouraging words and actions. While we do this throughout the year, the holiday season provides an especially wonderful opportunity for us to share what we have with those who are less fortunate. In Hebrew, we call this “Tzedakah,” and doing the right thing is something that even our youngest children can comprehend and carry out. We began talking about this in preparation for our Thanksgiving luncheon, which we hosted for our friends from the Jupiter Head Start Program, and have continued the conversation into discussion about Chanukah, the Festival of Light. In order to share our light with those who really appreciate our acts of loving kindness, we ask that each child bring in one gently-used toy to share with a child of a similar age.
 Please fill in the bottom of the form that was sent home today,with your child’s thoughts about how he or she can share the light with the world. Then, please take a photo of your child with the item that will be donated. Please return the item and the bottom of this page to your child’s teacher by no later than Friday, December 12th. All donated items will be given to the children of the Jupiter Head Start Program, and your child’s thoughts and photo will be proudly displayed on the bulletin board in our school hallway, to reinforce the concept of “doing the right thing.”
This is our last year's collection of "Share the Light"
